    Default Installing Disk brakes cHonda 125

    Hi, Is it possible to install disk brakes in CG 125 or Chines 125 bikes in both front and rear tires?
    Also what would be the maximum rim and tires we can install in 125 front and rear wheel.

    front can be swaped with deluxe 125 but rear one is difficult but cg125 doesn't need rear disc.
    Disc brakes are stronger then drum and they create more friction then drums,So a vehicle having rear disc should have much more weight+wheels friction.Means disc are only needed when drums are not sufficient to make vehicle stop.So if you install rear disc chances of your bike getting skit increases to dangerous level.

    As hassan bhai said its always better to have disk brake in front wheel rather than rear too but drum on front is good to go.

    Thanks guys, My only concern is to have better safety and comfort level. If drum is good on rear and front then no issue, or if front disk is preferable? secondly i am also not satisfy with rear shocks of 125 so what are the best available options for rear shocks?
    Thanks in advance...

    P.S: I think yamaha ybr-g full fills my needs but budget is not allowing me to go for ybr so was thinking to buy cHonda 125 and add brakes, bigger tires and shocks for better ride experience...

    Buying a good conditioned (second hand) Honda or CHonda 125, adding disc brake at front, experiments with rear shocks, the overall cost reaches at a level where you would need to add few more bucks and you are good to purchase a very neat condition YBR (as its resale is not that good at the moment). With YBR you will have peace of mind, comfort.

    The other way, adding a disc brake at front on CG can be done in two ways. Either you install disc brake on the stock jump bottles by using custom made steel rod to hold the caliper. All you need to buy, the disc brake setup, hub, speedometer machine. Made in China complete setup will cost you not more than Rs.4000 (that steel rod thing is not included).

    Or you need to do little research and hunt for the bottles. Find bottles having bolt fittings to hold the calliper, matches the rod dia and the overall fitting.

    I am really not sure about the fitting of Dlx setup, you might need to research on the length of jump and overall fitting like the T fitting. It will cost you much more.
