Stanford I'm replacing my brake drums on a 1985. Its pretty simple once you get the wheel off. Ordered the new brakes on Amazon for about $20.

Replacing the tires now.

The Spline lube or any search for rear tire removal with a spline will work.

Havent done the front calipers yet. Want to replace the rear tire first.

Edit: you will need Brake Cleaner.... its about $7.00 a can.

Looks as if EBC does make rotors that fit.

There's like a millimeter or less of surface left... not warped, just worn

there ya go.

Just a couple I found in a VERY quick search

Need to remember, the bike has been out of production since 2007 (2006 was last year for them), and even when in production, there was nearly zero aftermarket support (it aint a harley where you can get just about everything aftermarket)
