*Warning* Do not try fitting a XF disk brake setup to an XB 9"

I thought I would post this info.

I have been trying for the past few months to fit an XF disk brake setup to an XB 9" and can honestly say there is no way to make it work!

I was advised by a mechanic that I trusted that it was far superior to the XB brake setup, but the XF rotors do not fit over the XB hubs and there is no other rotor made that will fit.

So after spending way too much time and money on this setup I can honestly say its a waste of time, stick with your XB brake setup or pay the money to have it converted properley.

Cheers,
