Brake seals

How hard is it to replace the seals in the brake piston? What's the best way to pull out piston? Is it quite an easy job?  Any help would be great thanks.


O the bike in question is a zzz 600 e3

zzr brakes

Calipers are easy enough to strip if they're not seized solid.... The standard zzr Tokico calipers are not particularly brilliant, so lots of owners fit Nissin calipers from a range of Hondas. Get yourself over here, join in, and you'll get all the advice you need.  :winkie:

ZZR calipers

You need the 4 piston calipers from a CBR600 or 900 where the mounting holes are 63mm apart. You want the rounded calipers, as opposed to the pointy ones like are found on firestorms.

Seriously, get over to the ZZR-INT forums and ask on there...

Calipers

You want THESE calipers, or ones that look the same.

You will eiher need to get the caliper bolt holes drilled and re-tapped, or use a set of THESE as the bolts are a different size.

If I were you I would take the advice of the others as I don't know about the mods to your bikes brakes.

What I do know though is that Jaffa must of been at the Easy Start again.
