Advice on Brembo Caliper fitment

Hi could anybody offer any advice on fitting brembo calipers to fit an 05 sprint st 1050 as my original brakes are really spongy and knowing Triumph UK the cost of the d675 coated pistons will be costly..and on previous bikes fitted with Brembo`s i`ve never had a problem...

I'm led to believe its more of an issue with the master cylinder than the caliper or pistons. Why don't you look at alternatives?

Should be a lot cheaper.

Hi thanks for he reply Deanorider with the photo, that looks good and have been looking to source some Brembo calipers on the net will also look to replace he master cylinder , i don`t have a lot of confidence having to squeeze the lever twice to get any braking force and have priced the daytona 675 coated pistons and seal kit from Triumph and works out expensive and may cure the problem .

Hi I fitted 675 pistons and seals to my sprint I got a set of calipers secondhand of ebay and just used the pistons and seals. They work a treat better than 6 pot calipers i tried those as well. It is not a master cylinder problem as is widely suggested.
Happy New Year Paul

The EBC HH pads make a huge difference in stopping power so maybe give that a try first if you haven't already. My '08 came with a 5/8" master cylinder and although the lever felt firm, the braking power was lacking for me, especially during two-up riding.. I switched it out for a 14mm M/C, which made enough of a difference in power to make me happy, which I'll admit isn't easy! I can now lock up the wheel with 2 fingers. The downside is a mushy feel to the lever. So to me, it was worth trading a powerless "wood" feel for a spongy one-finger brake. They fade though 10-15 minutes into a track session, so I upgraded to wave rotors, hopefully that will help with that problem. It all depends on what you're looking for from your front brake. The photo is my caliper with Ti hardware.

I really can't imagine a Brembo caliper being an improvement if you have to add an aluminum bracket to get it onto the forks. I went the 6-pot route and never looked back; EBC HH pads.

Cheers,

Yes! Because it's at the top left!

It's cheaper and just as effective to do the Tokico swap too.
