R1/R6 Brake caliper and master cyl upgrade
So I am just about ready to install the calipers and master cylinder from an 06 R1.
I bought them as a full front brake set, from the lever to the calipers, off of Ebay. When they showed up, it looked like they had never been cleaned and had been left outside for quite a while so I decided to do all the caliper seals and a master cylinder rebuild kit.
For all of you guys who are running this upgrade, you may want to consider doing the master cylinder. The cup seal was fairly worn on mine and the piston movement back and forth had a metal on metal feel before the rebuild.
I bought a set of spacers from Zoran V and I am going to pull out the original locator dowels from the R1 Calipers. Zoran's spacers fit inside the hole in the caliper once the locators are pulled and they will give me 3mm between the caliper and the fork.
I have one question for anyone who has done this mod, and yes I have tried to search it!
Caliper bolts. The oem caliper bolts from an R1 are 5mm longer than the stock triumph ones. With a 3mm spacer between the caliper and the fork, will oem r1 caliper bolts work or are they too long?
I am going to buy stainless pad pins as the oem ones are a little rough and rusty so I may just add some caliper bolts to the order, but I don't want to get the wrong size.
