Need to Mill down a brake caliper..any suggested places to go?

I'm trying to add a brembo brake caliper from a Husky 510SMR. I might have to mill down the back to get it to clear my spokes. Any suggested places around town?

Get it mounted with the right bracket first. It is a tight fit even on the Huskies. On my Husky there is literally like 3mm of clearance between the caliper and the spokes. If the rim bends after a jump or something it will ruin my day.

I'm still in the planning stages, I'll keep you in mind when I get the bracket in. It's basically milling down the back of the caliper just about 1-2 mm if I even need it.

Brandon yoyodyne has a bracket that is or use with all brembo caliper with 100mm mounting spaces. I think that the one I need but going to measure when u get home. This might work after all...


Zaxos I'll hit up George tomorrow....

On my phone sorry for all the bad grammar
