93 Front brakes

Postby hazelwoodgarage » Mon Jun 01, 2015 4:33 pm



On the right front brake caliper bracket I noticed the caliper is really loose on the bracket that holds the caliper to the fork, I know its supposed to float and has rubber bushings, is it common for the bushings on the bracket to wear? It makes noise when I hit bumps, I called the dealer and he said 110.00 for the bracket.

Is it rattling from side to side, or fore/aft?
