With respect part numbers, no need to leave the site... you can just use this thread by Screw Loose Dan here on this forum for those part numbers and a pictorial "how-to" http://xlforum.net/forums/s...d.php?t=274658. He also has a similar thread on installing dual XR brakes with the 19" alloy wheels.

And then there's also Bighit4u32's thread of the duals on his nightster; though he has racetech valves in his forks. So it is interesting to read how you find the stock forks with the duals. I know when Screw Loose Dan first did his single brembo (before he put the dual setup on) he was finding the low suspension was bottoming out a lot under brakes, though his fork springs had done many miles. Guessing your duals will test out the limits of the stock fork travel too, even if the springs are in good condition. Be interesting to get an update from you after a few months of riding with them.
Ive read through all of those threads at one point in time, and I usually stay on this site for everything, but this list I found has everything categorized in part numbers down to the crush washers...extensive and extremely thorough. Drilling and tapping was done at my indy because he has a bridgeport machine and it was super easy for him and me lol. The rest of the install was done by myself. After riding with it for awhile I cant imagine riding without it. Its not super touchy under normal braking whered id be thrown off the bike, but it stops uniformly smooth and very quickly. I did grab just a bit past threshold once when testing it and chirped the front tire on me lol. Best mod ive done yet.

Yes the rotors are slightly larger in diameter and almost twice as thick. The slider is an 883R fork slider and im posting the part # below.

The take off system was $399 from ebay, fork slider was $120 from Latus, Stainless steel lines were $90 from ebay, $40 so my indy would drill and tap the hub, and banjo bleeder bolts from ebay $15.... finally a Bottle of Dot 4 $4....so roughly $670

Fork slider is an 883R right slider part # 46449-08. Nightster slider is gloss black and this one is flat black, I havent painted them both the same color yet, but this winter ill give the whole bike a new paint job ;-)

so that 883R slider, does it have the same top shape as the nightster one? the gaiter boots fit right on? my concern is that I have a superbrace for a nightster, and if the top of the slider is different, it might not fit anymore.

The top of it is different on the 883R slider but the gaiter will fit fine. Ive wanted a superbrace but would also like to know if it will fit. If it wont maybe ill buy the left slider

.... oh and by the way.... I love the brakes.... I use a ton of front brakes. I would get killed on the first day without good front brakes but I could ride all summer long without rear brakes
