brake callipers

Postby cuda1day » Mon Mar 29, 2010 10:48 am



Need a little help. I went to rebuild my right front calliper and the repair kit seals are much larger than what I removed. 86 gl1200 Interstate. The diameter of the piston is 1inch . Is it possible I have the wrong calliper on this bike? Owned it since Nov. '09. and its my first one. Any info would be helpfull. Thanks

I looked it up, and that's the correct kit for the front right caliper. Any chance a PO replaced the caliper?

Thats what I think has happened. I was wondering if this caliper might have been OE on a gl1000 or 1100. Thanks for the response.
