Front brake calipers...

Post by Sempai » Mon Jun 07, 2010 8:33 pm

A friend of mine recently purchased an '81 GL1100. The front calipers are toast. Can anyone help me find functioning replacements, or direct me to where I can get rebuild kits for them? Any help would be fantastic as this bike is my friend's only means of transportation.

Keep the rubber side down.

Go to the how to articles , I believe the rebuild kits are shown in there with a link. It is a very good how to post also.
