Fzr 400 3en1 rear caliper options

Post by ChrisKin » Thu Dec 27, 2018 11:40 am

Hi

The 3en1 brake rear caliper pistons on a bike I’m restoring are seized in. Tried air gun, heat and ones stuck so I’ll need to destroy the piston to get it out.

Would r6 blue spot rear caliper fit as the front calipers do?

Seems cheaper to get a 2nd hand r6 rear caliper than 2 new pistons and rebuild kits so just confirming if they’re compatible

Thanks

Chris

The problem is the disc is smaller than any other bike ... 210mm dia. So a 600 caliper might sit differently and not grip the disc so well.
I'd use new pistons even though it might be expensive at least you know it will bolt up easily.
