    So an 88trx caliper mounts to an 85 caliper mounting plate? I thought they had different mounting points. Or maybe you mean get the whole 85 setup - caliper + caliper mounting plate.

    85-89 calipers are the same. The bracket to bolt it to the brake stay are diff along with the brake stay...

    Also you will need a 85 carrier.. I would hate to see you drill into that thing.

    Well, I brought this westcoast swingarm back from the dead so Im seriously thinking i can justify some minor fabrication if needed. I don't know if I want to completely convert it over to an 85 setup... But if I did - you're saying I'd need an 85 mounting plate + 85 axle carrier only? So the 88 trx caliper and the 88 trx axle and all other 88 hardware are compatible with the 85 plate and carrier.

    That's a sweet setup you got there - is that extra mount to the plate in the right in your pic custom? I already have it re-decaled from Mr. Clean

    If you want to use the brake setup from a 88 all you will need to buy is the 85 carrier. The 86-89 brake stay and snap ring will fit the 85 carrier. fab up a new "hold" for the stay and you will be in business.. axle will work from 85-89..

    So I stripped the paint, cleaned it up, and took it over to Metaltech and had Tyler replate it and blend it in...
