Brake caliper O/H kit question

Time to o/h the calipers on my TBS as one of the pistons is getting a tad sticky.

My question to all is, what other models use the same Nissin calipers as Triumph?

Or am I stuck ordering the kit from my local dealer?

You can get pattern parts from http://www.wemoto.com/ but I don't know if the shipping time and cost makes it viable.

Again, not exactly a convenient source bearing in mind your location, but Sprint Manufacturing in the UK also stock OEM Nissin components. Have a look (at the replacement caliper 27mm piston section) at their comments regarding the use of pattern versus OEM.

If you do end up having to replace pistons rather than just the seals, it may be worth springing the extra for geniune Nissin parts.

Sorry I can't help you with any cross reference with other Manufacturers. As I'm sure you're aware, these Nissin items must be used on loads of different bikes.

Yep, I was hoping maybe to be able to go to the local Yammahonwasaki dealer and pick up the parts off the shelf.

Alternately, my dealer also carries Kawasaki, so it would be ****e if they had to order in parts fro Triumph when they had the same part for a Kawasaki on the shelf.

early CBR600 I think... I hung on to the box with the part number of the pattern part but thats at home at the mo... I doubt though that genuine yamazukiwaki ones are much cheaper though and i guess thats what dealers will stoick, unless you've got a general bike parts shop...

Might be worth dropping these an email, their prices are pretty keen. Got my Tiggers pistons and seals a while back and have no complaints
