wanted. Brembo front caliper

Post by gillers50 on Wed 29 Aug 2018, 12:05 pm

Brembo front caliper required to get the bike back on the road.  New seals etc have not cured the fluid leak and another `good' one seems the only option.  Anyone got a spare that is good that they will part with? I will of course pay for it and any P & P.  Thought i'd ask on the forum before trying fleabay as more likely to get a good one on here.

Problem solved - could be??   A walk into town and a chat with a biker colleague and the result was that he had a spare brembo caliper in his man shed. He had acquired sometime/somewhere in the past but didn't know what it was from. It looks identical and has no visible leaks so I will try it and see - fingers crossed.

If you're still stuck I'll be home on the 22nd/23rd September, I think I may have a spare caliper.

Or if you get a seal set I'll rebuild your caliper for you whilst you wait - just as long as you make the tea Wink

The `odd' caliper from my mate was indeed the right one.  Now fitted and working fine with new disc pads.  I also changed the fork oil to 15w after reading comments on the forum and what a difference.  Much nicer to ride and no diving front under braking  Thanks James for the offer of your help should I not be able to solve the problem.  Peter
