Hi everyone. I am wanting to convert my rear drum brake to a disc brake. Has anyone done this as well? If so would you mind explaining what you needed exactly and what bike you used as a donor. And possibly some pictures. I would really love to attempt this as on hot summer days I am experiencing slippage in the rear brake. Thanks in advance guys.

Cannot help you there as I don't know of any VZ800 with a disc rear brake & I think you will have a lot of work on to get one on your bike. Possibly someone will tell you but I'm sure that it cannot be done?

One of the things I don't like about my VZ800 is the rear wheel. While searching wheel swaps I came across a VZ800 with a 3 spoke SV650 wheel and disc brake. Makes me wonder if I could swap front and rear wheels for the five spoke wheels that are fitted to the later SV650. https://www.suzuki800.com/t5148-rear-brake-drum-to-hydraulic-conversion-1997-vz800
