both front caliper rebuild

Post by froche »

OK it seems there are hundreds of kits at all prices for the front calipers... ant suggestions?
On my other bikes. I just pushed in the pistons and replaced the pads, one bike I had to rebuild all the calipers but they were all the same and reasonably priced from Yamaha.

I have ordered the rear caliper (which needs it) and its on the way. but the fronts may only need caliper seals... any thoughts

I'd just do the dust and oil seals, not much can go wrong with the calipers.
