If that's the case it wouldn't work anyways. Bc to big of a chance to wedge a rock in there. ThxsAs stated, it would be better, but IIRC the person that did it say even after grinding it down there was only a fraction of an inch between the inner rim and the outer part of the caliber.
That would be irrelevant bc im keeping it til the end lol. When I get a new one this one will go to the kids or wife
How? Who looks at brake calipers when they are shopping for an ATV? lol. And I doubt (if done correctly) you would notice 3/16 of an inch missing with the rims on it. Maybe with a sharp eye you'd notice the smaller rims but the avg Joe more then likely wouldn't.
He's not being sarcastic, they do suck. The difference between 12in and 14in is 2 inches right? Now take a tire that is 26in but comes in both a 12in and 14in rim size. So on the radius of the 14in rim that means you are loosing 1in of sidewall; which means you are loosing extra "cushion" while running the trails and rocks. Same as a car running low profile tires vs the normal passenger tires to an extent; the ride becomes much harsher and firm.
