1985 GW Limited right front brake caliper

Postby w4r » Mon Mar 30, 2015 10:12 am



My right front brake caliper is still leaking. I replaced the seals and pistons. Tried cleaning as best I could. Had some pitting but thought the new seals would fix it. I can not find a right front caliper on line (new) or a good used one. Question is the right front caliper on a 1500 GW (has a different part number) the same caliper as the 1200? Can I use a 1500 caliper on my 1200?
Help!

Very unlikely, without a fair bit of modification.
