    Here is the final idea with the yzf rotor and the adapter plate.

    That works. Now put big windows in them and get rid of 75% of the weight.

    Agreed, but will have to probably wait till the 2.0 update as I don't have a mill or lathe yet and the sparce time I get access on them means I need to build the required parts as quickly as possible.

    I like your approach with the hubs and rotors. Straightforward and easy (for us) to duplicate.

    Had to modify a couple fasteners for the rotors as they were too close to the bolt holes that mount the adapter plate to the hubs.
    Well rotors didn't run true after I mounted them up so I thru a dial indicator on the mount plate and spun the hub. It appears the mount plate is being pulled out of true as the hubs are not machined on the back side. I will either have to shim the mount plate or machine the back side of the hubs to get the rotors straight. The dial indicator said one side was .035" out and the other was .048" from the high to low spots.

    Looks like version 2.0 of this buggy may happen sooner than I had expected. A bit dirty and needs some lube but should be a workhorse. The guy I bought it from used to build motors for dirt track oval racers and was a machinist at work with me years ago.
