Need Connie owner in Hudson River Valley
« on: March 04, 2010, 04:41:00 pm »
I believe the front brakes are the same on all of the 1000cc Connies...  Someone please tell me if they are not!    I am developing a brake upgrade kit for the Zephyr 550, and I know the Zephyr has the same rotors and calipers as the early 1000cc Connie.  I would like to try installing a kit on a member bike for fitment, and if everything fits and works as it should, I will then have kits or just adapter brackets to offer for sale.    Until I know the parts fit and work properly, I don't want to get anyone all excited over this.  Even if the fitment differs, I may be able to modify the adapters so they will work with Connies.    Anyone in the Hudson River Valley between Albany and NYC who doesn't mind bolting up a kit to check fitment, please contact me at your convenience.  I am between Kingston and New Paltz (slightly closer to Kingston), so closer would be ideal, but I'll drive if I need to.  I have a feeling there will be some happy Connie owners if I get this working, and selling to Connie owners will help me bring the cost down significantly as there are a lot more Connies out there than there are Zephyr 550s.  :D    PM me here, or email me directly at    Thanks!

  The bike saw an upgrade to the forks, wheel and front brakes in 94+ bikes    --  Steve Smith, COG #3184  COG Northeast Area Director  (somewhere in south central CT)    If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."
