Default DUAUL DISK SPRINGER? Experts Help

.

I just purchased a Moto Iron Springer along with a right side disk caliper set up.

Can I simply buy the exact same let side setup and have dual disks?

What else do I need?

Would that necessitate a dual line master Cylinder on the handlebars?

Can any one help me spec this out?

Its all TC Bros Moto Iron stuff so far so please tell me what I need to buy to get this done.

Best regards,

FiftySixer

can't answer many of your questions, but most dual disc sporties I've seen had 1 line from the cylinder, and it then T'd where the line mounts to the bottom of the triple.

Single coming off the master down to a block the isn't exactly a T but a little manifold that amounts to a T that has a bolt to hold into the cross support on the forks.

Looking at the pic. Your front end better have tabs for a left side caliper mount welded on also.
Ordering one won't make mounting tabs . It will click in your mind when you stop and think about it.

I'd live with single disc and call it a day.

Does your wheel hub have a bolt pattern for the rotor on the blank side?

Default Confused about line diameter

I;ll look but I think both the wheel and the springer mirror for dual installations of disk and caliper.

Can anyone clarify in detail what they are talking about with regard to the different measurements are for 5/8, 9/16/n11/16 3/4" in the disk brakes for springers.

I have a +2" Moto Iron Springer and as I understand it I can still use my stock sportster controls and master cylinder.

Does anyone know what the spec is on the moto iron calipers as far as what they need as far as line interior diameter and interior of the fitting on the nester cylinder to provide adequate fluid flow?

I guessing that if the intake fitting on the caliper is 3/4" the line must also be the same diameter and the fitting on the master cylinder must also be 3/4"

I know absolutely nothing about any of this and all this could be/ is probably completely wrong.

I'm reaching out for a detailed and lengthy explanation that would bring clarity to idiot.

Thanks as always guys, I deeply appreciate the patience and generosity shown me here on this forum. You guys are the best. Thanks again,

Best regards, FiftySixer

The different sizes are Bore diameters not line size.
For dual calipers you want a larger bore but what size is determined by the caliper capacity.
You need to talk to Moto-Iron about that.

I think that is enough for your bike for now. You will need more stuff and that will be of great help in the future.
