Different size calipers on front brakes, please help

Postby 86goldwingcyndi » Sun May 01, 2016 1:40 pm



I'm really hoping someone is able to help. Have an 86 goldwing. Vin number matches an interstate model.... I'm having a great deal of difficulty finding info on this. Tried manuals, repair books, internet, etc. This bike has two different sized front break calipers, 25 and 32. Just want to make sure this is correct and does anyone know how to buy these parts? Every site I search lists only one size for the front; 25. And doesn't even list the size of the rear piston. Also if anyone here knows how to figure out what exact model the bike is. Please help. GL1200... but then the following letters are where I'm confused. As I said, doing an online search of the Vin just says interstate. Title didn't say anything other than goldwing....

Partzilla Honda lists the parts for front and rear. if they dont have the parts, use their part #s and look else where. :shock:

On a frame a friend of mine had for sale, here is a photo of the plate with some info that you may find useful. Yours will be located on your frame in the same location. I'm just including the pic so you can see where it is located. Hope this helps.
