Super hack on the drum! It will work fine, it's a very high resolution and the speedo and cruise shouldn't mind a tiny bit of variation between the teeth.

That’s what I was hoping.. I figured worse case I could swap it with the other new drum and have that one machined.. but I think it’s going to work fine..Hopefully I will be testing it headed to Arcadia at the end of the week.. It’s going to be a busy week..

Looks good, I have been enjoying your post. I wonder if you could clamp to drums together tight and then drill between them to make the notches.

That thought had crossed my mind.. I suppose if you could keep them tight it could be done. Not sure how hard it would be to try to drill on that seam. I think you could run some threaded rod through the stud holes and use that to clamp them together. That would be faster in the respect that you would be cutting 2 at the same time, But you really only need one notched drum. Maybe next time.. my buddy wants to look at his brakes too so I may be doing the same thing for his.

Yea, I was not too sure about it myself.. but they do not even stock any of the old style nuts and one of mine was bad.. I did feel better actually once I installed it.. you see how much force I had to put on it to back it off, I do not think it would be able to back off on its own. This apparently is the nut they are putting on the new stuff.. so there must be some history of them working. The other downside is they are like 50 bucks each.. my parts guy was furious about that and told them they are robbing people.. He really just wanted to get me the old style nut.. may could have ordered it but I am still trying to get it together to get to Arcadia. At this point it looks like I am not going to get there till Friday.
