Dual Paddles on Foreman 450

Alright you guys I'm gonna need some pointers on deleting the rear break on ole yella. I feel uncomfortable ridding with just one paddle. I know I'm gonna have to do some cutting but what am I suppose to cut?. Also is any part of the break going to have to be removed and not put back ?Any help will be highly appreciated

Remove the brake drum cover, drum and backing plate.


You want to grind the drum down until all that is left is the center piece.


You want to cut the backing plate down to only leave the middle part and mounting bolts.


It will look like this when you're done.

OK I gotcha. So the drum cover doesn't go back in? What about the seal it has ?

That's the drawback to a brake delete. You lose the seal, so no, the drum cover stays off. You just have hub, center of brake drum, bearing and stud center part of the backing plate.


Of course, the drums usually fill with water anyway so I guess it's not that much different.


Most people drill a hole in the axle tube just inside the brake backing plate, add a zerk, and fill the axle tube full of grease.


Make sure you grease those rear bearings in the backing plate, and expect to take them off and regrease them every once and awhile.

Alright these paddles are making me worry. I put it in the mud and the bike feels like there's a lot of strain. It ran no problem threw theses holes before any paddles besides getting bottomed out. It even ran pretty good threw them with one paddle. Can it be to much having two paddles with my bike? I don't think it is I hope not. Or maybe I gotta do some tuneing? I really don't wanna be an ass I just love my bike and its never possible to find the stop point to putting something else on it.

Have you geared the bike down yet, adding paddles with larger tires I can imagine would put a lot of strain on the bike.
