    I just wanted to introduce myself. I have been lurking and reading for quite sometime. My name is Travis. I am from Melissa, TX. I have started my first project I am in the process of redoing a 2005 Whizzer. I eventually plan on a custom frame for the whizzer motor. My cylinder, head, and clutch has been sent to be redone and improved by Quinton Guenther. Today I fixed the front brakes and added disc brakes to the rear. I cant wait to get the parts back and see what a difference it will make. I hopefully will have it up and running in the next couple of weeks.

    Welcome to the forum. I'm a 2 stroke guy but I may build a whizzer one day.

    I don't know if you already have a front disc brake but thats the first wheel that should have it since 60% of the stopping power is up front.
    Can you post a picture of it?

    I posted pictures of the conversion in the whizzer section. I cleaned and grooved my front brake as Quinton suggested. I am going to see how this set up works out. If I don't like it I will convert the front to disc brakes also.

    I appreciate all the warm welcomes!
