    Disc brake options

    I have a 2000 F900SX. I rode the heck out of it for a few years after purchasing. My life became hectic and it hung in the garage for about 7 years. I've recently started riding again. The bike is in great shape...just threw on a new lefty fork. Although it is 10yrs old, it doesn't seem terribly out of date. I want to make sure I am going to consistently ride before even thinking about a new bike. I'm wanting to get a FS down the road. It, for me, is still a great hardtail.

    Anyway...The coda expert brakes squeal like a pig. The stopping power is just not there anymore. What are my options for replacing the brakes. I believe they are 4 bolt rotors and everythink I see out there is 6 bolt.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I am in the same boat with an 02 jekyll with coda hubs. I reasearched it myself on here and it seems like the options are:
    1. Buy new calipers and use the existing rotors.
    2. Hope still makes a 4 bolt rotor, check their website.
    3. New wheelset (or hubs at least).
