Dan,Any thoughts as to whether the pistons from a newer 675 would still fit the '06 Sprint? They didn't change at all over the years, did they? Trying to avoid the caliper swap.
I'm new to this so I'm not sure if not replacing the seals (I assume the big rubber pieces in the shapes of calipers are seals...) is necessary. Is it necessary or just good practice to replace them?Dan,
I don't know about the monoblock calipers - might be best to avoid those in case the pistons are different. Otherwise D675 pistons from the Nissin radial calipers will fit the Sprint calipers.
Personally I consider it bad practice to replace pistons without using new seals. Since the D675 pistons and seals come as a complete kit I don't see the value of using old pistons. I know there are plenty that will disagree but it wouldn't be right to post on the subject without expressing my concerns about your plan.
Nice new D675 pistons & seals ready to install.
Yes, you're missing this post where I said that Daytona 675 pistons come with the seals. At least that's what I got when I ordered from Bike Bandit. Brand new pistons and seals for a total of $150 (less 10% discount for AMA members).Am I missing something here?
I see what you mean - BBandit shows (for the 675) two different part numbers for the pistons and the seals, but on the actual part table, it lists them as being the same thing - piston set. Price is $75.30 per set.Yes, you're missing this post where I said that Daytona 675 pistons come with the seals. At least that's what I got when I ordered from Bike Bandit.

Edit: here are the BB part numbers if you're interested (click on the image for a larger version).
The D675 piston swap completely cured the inconsistent lever travel on my bike. When I researched prior to doing the mod, that seemed to be the experience of others too.- any word at all on this piston swap not solving the pump-it-up lever travel problem?
