    Will XT/R brakes fit on my 2010 RZ120

    I bought a rz 120 recently and am thinking of replacing the Avid elixir brakes with a set of xt or xtr.
    Otherwise the bike is stock

    1. Will I need to replace the IS mounts
    2. Will the levers fit the narrow diameter of the stock handlebars
    3. Do I need to replace the rotor


    Thanks for your help

    1. XTs are post mount calipers and use an adapter to fit IS mounts (the adapters that your Avid brakles use can be used with XTs). XTRs come in either post or IS mount calipers (this saves weight by ditching adapters).
    2. All handlebars have the same diameter in the area where brakes mount.
    3. No, but you can lose some weight if you do replace them with one of the lighter options.

    I have both XT and XTR IS mount brake sets that I need to sell and will let go cheap. I also have lightweight 6" rotors. Private message me if you want'em.
