I replaced my brake callipers

So I finally sorted my Tigers brakes. Badly seized on the sliding pins, with rusty pistons. So, £100 for rebuild kits, or £65 for a pair of 2015 Street Triple, 1650 mile calliper's? I chose the calliper's, as you would expect, absolutely immaculate. But, cleaned and lubed the sliding pins and shims etc. I replaced the pad retaining pins with stainless ones that I already had. Just half an hour to fit, Pads in the calliper's barely bedded in, so saved my new set for next time. About an hour to bleed with new fluid. The result is fantastic front brakes, oh and a rather attractive gold finish on my silver Tiger.
If anyone is interested, they are the same as Nissin calliper,s fitted to 900 Thunderbirds, Tigers, Bonneville's etc, worth checking if you need calliper's.

Thanks, good info. I am working on my rear brake right now, did you use a copper crush washer on the banjo bolt or the triumph specific one?
