Default brakes.

Can someone tell me the difference between R75 and MGZT 190 front brakes. And what is needed to upgrade 75 front brakes to 190 front brakes?

To convert you will need a pair of 190 discs (larger diameter - 325mm comes to mind but donít take that as gospel)

A pair of 190 calipers and carriers, the standard brake hoses fit ok, but to do the job correctly get a pair of 190 hoses.

Thanks for that, Will the 190 carriers fit onto the STD 75 suspension legs. As I have looked and the carriers on the 75 are a lot smaller and none of the holes line up with the 190 carriers

Sorry I mean the Hub Carriers

OK FORGET ALL, THAT I WAS LOOKING AT THE WRONG CARRIERS. ALL SORTED NOW

And from what I have read, you need the larger size wheels for them to fit behind. 17 inch wheels I think?
