Who rebuilds Bembo calipers

I may need to have my rear brake caliper rebuilt (2006 S2R 800) any ideas . . . I live in Maui Hawaii and no dealer near by . . .

You can buy a rebuild kit or just buy a new caliper.

Why do you say you may need to rebuild it?

Re: Who rebuilds Bembo calipers

I did a dumb thing and adjusted the brake too tight . . . went off on a ride and smoked (actually burned) the brake pads . . . I have ordered new pads, but I'm worried that I damaged the seals on the pistons . . .

Hopefully they will be fine (I think they will be okay). Can you see any brake fluid leaking through around the piston.

If they are screwed up, you should be able to buy some new seals and do it yourself.

LT Snyders book has a good write up on a re-build.

Re: Who rebuilds Bembo calipers

check out yoyodyneti.com or www.tawvehicle.com

it's a P32 type caliper, forget if it is a F or G, but they are the same kit.

about $17 for the pucks and $10 for the seal/bolt kit
