Poxy brakes
« on: March 10, 2018, 08:27:10 AM »

Just changed the pads all round and found the front right caliper seized , both pots on one side .
Had to whip the caliper off the other bike so one caliper short now .
It is absolutely rooted , they look like rusty steel instead of brass and the seals are shot too.
Does anyone have an idea if any other bike front calipers will fit the GT650 please. Any help would be most welcome  :)
It is what it is so just have to find some way out of this .
Thought about getting a rebuild kit but you can get second calipers for the same price and that could end in tears but what can you do  ;D

Cant confirm, but everything i've seen shows these are identical, Honda CBR600 F4/F4i
I know the pads are the same.

I can confirm that they are in fact identical.

There are a few CBR models use these same brakes.

Post a link before you buy and I'll see if it looks right.

Thanks guys  :) :)
On another note , it could be a life saver if the people here , took their calipers off (just need a 5mm Allen key) and made sure all 4 pots were working on both calipers . It's a 5 minute job and could save your life. Just look at them while they are in your hand and make sure all 4 pots are coming out and can retract .If they are fine , just push them back and re-fit , happy days . If they are not , fix them !
I had a fright when I saw my ones were shagged .
If you are riding your bike all the time , then it's probably fine .
If you are just a weekend rider or once in a blue moon rider , you really need to check these .
Bought one on FleaBay for $49 so that will do . A Hyosung one that is .

Def get yourself the 2015 gt650r/gd250n rear caliper setup, that's a massive improvement over the originals on the earlier gt650's.

If it's a straight swap , I would be game for that  :)
Anything that improves braking has to be good .
Cheers buddy .

It is, direct bolt on. The difference is night and day, the twin piston early model felt as if there was almost no braking at all, the new one was instantly 100% better, i find i barely use my front brakes even, slowing down is mostly coasting and little rear application. The new fixed caliper single opposing pistons make a world of difference.

I did get my one from http://www.hyosungpartsonline.com.au/
but they dont seem to have any more on their site, sold out perhaps ???

And the last one i got was off a guy 2nd hand wrecking a 2015 gt650r, whole rear caliper setup inc lines, master, etc.. $20.
