I have one of each, the xtreme is on my 450 and the HL kit is on the wifes 400 foreman. both are holding up well. Compairing them the xtreme rotor is twice the size of the hl kit. I like the xtreme kit because of it not having the slots to catch the dirt and sand. I also pay $40 for the replacement EBC heavy duty pads.

Whats the best place to pick up the extreme kit? It looks like my new project is going to need front wheel bearings so I might as well do the front brake conversion while I have things apart....

Just ordered the xtreme kit. Thanks folks. I guess I need a shop manual and a motor now. Anyone have a nice write up on doing this conversion and doing wheel bearings?

Let me know if anyone has a lead on an engine as well. thanks for the help on the brakes. The 450modman project is picking up speed and parts!

if the extreme kit is the same as the HL one it is easy as pie...just find a press to put the new wheel studs in..it makes it much easier...
Thanks. Got a press. I was more interested in the front wheel bearing replacement. Is there a good price on these I should be looking for? My past experience has always to buy timken bearings. thoughts here?

i ordered my bearings from rockymountainatv.com and i think i got bearings and seals shipped to me second day for $63 so i think that was really cheap considering that the local guy wanted about 50 per wheel... that 63 was for both wheels... im almost sure it was 63 it could have been 73 tho but i really think it was 63... just got my bearings put in this past friday night...
