Brake Caliper Relocation

Is there a front brake caliper relocation kit available for the Prowler XTZ? I got some new wheels and they are dangerously close to my calipers. Thanks

They used to but I don't see them on their website any more.

You are way off. I have 3 rides per year! Turbo XTZ is up and running great. Just working out a few small bugs and I need some front axles to be done. I am good with the clearance but a little more would make me feel better. New wheels and tires go on next week. Let's go ride I am ready any time.

From the picture it looks like you would gain plenty of room just by cleaning the casting ridges in the middle of the caliper.

That's what I thought as well but the picture was taken in macro mode very close up and the cast marks you see are actually the manufactures logo and is less than an 1/8". I am going to run it the way it is. I think if I clearance it more I might be inviting larger rocks and sticks to get jammed up in there. I think most rocks will bounce of the caliper and find their way out of the wheel with the tight clearance that's there now.
