Rear X brembos on CT9A?

Hi.

I have full set of X Brembos on the way and i know fronts area preatty straight forward but i couldnt find nothing solid about rears.

I imagine they need "dog bone" to fit calipers.
But what about the hand brake? Custom thicker hand brake shoes or even X hubs?

7/8/9 rear brembos are good but i bought kit with Giro discs so i would like to do the rears as well.

I have read that with little modifications earlier rear pads fit into X calipers.Correct?

Thanks for looking

Its a lot of work!...calipers need adaptor brackets making, handbrake drum/shoe size is different so needs either custom shoes making or an insert pressing into drum to reduce internal diameter, from memory i think there is an offset issue as well but cant remember for sure, I know some have done it but most deceided it was not worth all the agro and I agree.

Rear pads on the Evo X are very different/larger than Evo5-9 so no way you could use the earlier Evo pads in X calipers without making an adaptor of some sort to pack the pads out, why you would do this when there are plenty of options for X calipers I don't know.

Sell the X rear setup would be my advice and put money towards new discs and pads for your existing calipers.

Anything can be done if you're willing to put time and effort in and try do some research first..i managed to fit front and rear brembos and 5 stud conversion with a working standard handbrake to my E3 with a bit of help from a couple of people in new Zealand..it was the best thing I did!..I would try 'racefabnz' and see if they do or can make adaptor brackets to suit
