    uk spec calipers on us spec bike?

    HI The piston seals on the front brakes of my 98 US spec vmax all need replacing. They are different to the uk calipers and I was quoted £132 for the seals from Yamaha ! Was wondering if uk spec calipers are a straight replacement or do I need to suck up the postage charges of usa ebay?

    Grind calipers or hub?

    Ok, it seems I'm in the final stages of this front wheel mess. The last thing I have to do to get the wheel on there and usable is get the rotors to center in the calipers. I can either grind about 1/8" off each caliper mounting arm or take the wheel to a machine shop and have the entire face...

    Busa vs. TL1000 calipers

    I have been looking over eBay and it would appear that TL1000 and Hayabusa calipers are the same? I Googled it a little but came up empty. Anyone have any idea if this is true. I would prefer the TL1000 calipers since they are already black. Thanks for the help.
