    Caliper rebuild

    This is for purposes of information only, as a discussion of what can be done by the bike owner should he decide to fix a caliper. If this is beyond your skills, pay to have a professional mechanic perform your brake repair. Use new OEM parts, and a new can of brake fluid. Do you have a sticky...

    Bad caliper seals?

    6 pot calipers, I've got funny brake caliper feel and was wondering what the symptoms are for the seals going bad. I rolled downhill and applied partial brakes and it feels like the pistons are grabbing all of a sudden (not gradual braking as normally happens) at one point during wheel rotation...

He noticed it, messaged me, friend me on FB, and sent and email to make certain that I had the right info (which is a great...

    Caliper Piston Material-what is it?

    So, I got some 6-pot Sumitomos for a smokin' deal. Problem is, the P.O. Had them powdercoated blue which, by itself, isn't a problem. The problem is that he/she removed the old pistons by grabbing the outside with pliers. This wrecked them pretty good. Parts for these calipers are...

    Sticky rear caliper..... where to go from here

    I noticed the inner piston was sticking on my rear caliper a few weeks ago. Ordered a new seal kit, put it in, and blew out the caliper with compressed air. Put it back together and still doesn't work! The pad is actually in contact with the rotor so that's obviously not good! Where should I go...

    2002 to 1995 Caliper Question

    Does anyone know if the front calipers from a 2002 will work on a 1995? I have verified that the part number for the front calipers changed in 1997.

    Brake caliper seal

    None of the caliper rebuild kits come with the two small rubber seals that are inside the caliper, you have to split the caliper to get the pistons out and there they are but they do not come with any rebuild kits I have found online. Any suggestions?

    Caliper kits for stock same for front and back?

    Are the caliper kits for the front and rear of the VMax (1986) the same part? The part numbers are similar but not identical.

    FZ1 rotor and caliper modification

    I am in the process of adapting the FZ1 2000-2005 caliper (blue dot) and the 267 rear rotor to my max and I think I have a inexpensive solution. The caliper on the Fz1 is underslung which I like so it would require a post to be welded on the underside of the swing arm. (I had previously welded...
