Cheap F1 front brake caliper piston
« on: May 19, 2010, 09:45:48 AM »
Here's the cheap replacement front brake caliper piston kit I fitted to my F1.

Comes with an insert that applies pressure to the centre of the brake pad like the original Honda piston does.
The larger of the two seals supplied with the kit fits the F1 caliper.

Had to machine the recess in the rear of the brake pad out a bit so only the raised profile on the insert touches the brake pad.


Works a treat  :)
