      A have an older Crg with a Honda 390 on it and the old mojo brake system is giving me headaches. Can someone give me an easy rundown on how to spec a new single brake system?

      I must be thick, I don’t understand your question.

      I started looking at options for single brake kits, but I have no idea how interchangeable brakes are on karts. I also saw one company list two different bore sizes (1 and 1 1/8). So I’m not really sure if I just have to buy new CRG parts or if I can buy an “upgraded” brake system.

      You have to consider rotor width and also your caliper and MC mounting points. Sometimes you need to get a bracket that mounts on your bearing cassette or maybe drift a few holes.

      I like the MCP systems, they are a good price, don’t change every year and are available everywhere.

      Thanks for the info, Walt. The MCP brakes look like they have some nice features.

      MCP brakes are among the best around and they are affordable and long lasting.
