Brembo brake pistons

Anyone know a good place to buy replacement pistons for the front caliper?

Cheers

Parts 8 & 10 from Lings here:

I don't like the £70 plus postage but if you look here:

http://www.wemoto.com/bikes/honda/cb_500_v/97-98/

you can see that wemoto only do the smaller piston (why?). I do wander if you asked wemoto they *might* be able to get the other bigger one - after all it is 'just' a metal cylinder...

As I remember the original Brembo items have some kind of coating on them, probably to stop them corroding which may be a good reason to shell out the cash and buy the original items.
