GL1200 caliper pistons wanted

Post by harkgold » Sat May 12, 2012 8:05 pm

I'm in the process of rebuilding the brake calipers on my '84 GL1200 Interstate.

Viewed from a seated position on the bike I just finished the left front caliper and I'm now in the process of working on the right caliper.
I notice that the pistons in this right side caliper are considerably smaller than the pistons in the left caliper that I just completed.

It appears that the person that last worked on this right caliper must have had some difficulty because it looks like the outer rim of each piston has been chewed up by someone trying to extract them with a pair of channel locks or something.

Does anyone by chance have a pair of these laying around, or can someone point me to a source for these. I seem to be having trouble locating these. And I want to be sure I'm getting the correct piston since these are two different sizes between left and right.
