piston seals, dust seals

Post by bernyboy »

Just a quick question, are the brake piston seals the same front and back on a 1984 gl1200? Also are the dust seals the same front and back?

The front left and rear calipers use 32mm pistons while the front right has 25mm pistons. Each caliper will have these numbers stamped on the forward facing side just above the Exit of the disk. The difference is part of the linked brakes system.
Your Honda dealer will have the latest versions of these seals.

Good luck!
