Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Wanted rear caliper bracket and slider pin

Post by louis_sutton on Sat 03 Oct 2015, 5:28 pm

I find myself in need of a rear brake caliper bracket and the slider pin that screws into the caliper.

Any help appreciated!

Mate, one of the slider pins is welded into the bracket. I've spent several hours, deployed heat, penetrating oil and a bloody good hiding with a rubber mallet. I've had to cut it (It unscrewed a dream out of the caliper). Had a crack with a cut slot and impact driver to get some movement, to no avail. I'm going to try drilling tomorrow but that still leaves me in need of a slider!

Bloody hell. I only wanted to change the seals and the hose...

"The joys of motoring" as my dad used to say    Sad ,  sounds like an ordeal you had with it.  Ebay so?

I think I invented a few new swear words. And developed a new understanding of my dad, who's restored a couple of triumphs.

I think so. I might be able to drill it out, but a new caliper might be prudent.

Hell knows why, but the slider pins on the front and rear Brembo calipers aren't supposed to be removed or replaced and aren't available separately. 

The Nissin ones are however.

The lack of replaceable parts on Brembo brakes has always bothered me somewhat.

A quick search on the rear disc part number shows it's shared with the XL 600/650 which uses nissin so it's possible one of their callipers may fit without having to fabricate a suitable mouning bracket. If I can find one cheap enough I may just take a punt to find out. Worst case I can always sell it on.
