    Default Upgrade to 292mm rears

    If I wanted to upgrade rear brakes to 292's, would it be a straight swop of rear calipers and disks? or is anything else required?

    thanks

    You'd get new discs and pads anyway mate, yeah. Can get the disc and pad set for about 50 quid from VX if you know where to look, and they're still cheaper than buying brand new. I had Danboy price them up for me a while ago so I could paint them from new, and they're very very expensive...

    To be fair you probably wouldn't feel much difference with the rears after upgrading the fronts, but doing it just the fun of it would be good anyway...

    Good price I'd say, don't see them come up that often...
