    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?

    Bad rectifier? Replacement options in the UK?

    I just replaced my bulging battery, and she coughed straight back into life. However, checking the voltage across the terminals while idling at around 1000rpm, it was around 15V, jumping to 17V if I increased the revs. So the R/R is cooked, I think? Looking at options in the UK...
