General brakes question

Post by tmackillop » Sat Sep 28, 2013 3:51 pm

Hey guys. I'm curious, does the fitment of gl1100 dual piston calipers fit the dimensions of single piston calipers? Need to replace mine, seeing if one could fit the other.

No. But your calipers are rebuildable. Tedious but doable. And look in the How To section for pointers on how to do it.
