    Drum Brakes

    Would the drum brakes (front and rear) on and older dual sport be adequate for rideing on the road and gravel roads.

    Would be running tires like the "Trailwing"

    For the bike they were designed for or one close in spec as to power and weight then sure. As long as you don't try to put something off a ysr80 onto a YF400 or anything dumb like that.

    On pavement don't expect bikes with the small drum setups to stop you like your sportbike though.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
