wow, i never would have thought there was that much swept area! ive never actually don the math to see. it makes me want to pull my brakes apart to do some measuring and math! i will say this, although ive never seen a t500 drum fail in stock form, i know people have complained about them cracking etc... ive also been told they came cracked from the factory (just like cb350 frames came crooked??).

later
