Rear caliper slider seals
« on: 09 February, 2019, 06:37:33 PM »
Warmed up a tad here today 5c in me garage so inspired by Tim & his deep clean, thought I'd get amongst it.
Wheel off,  :232: :232: :232: :232: got me 18" bar on that 46mm nut, wouldn't budge, found a box key to use as extension, still no go, about to give up until I can get a length of tube when I saw the old exhaust off me Serow, so with a 2'-6" extension, the nut cracked undone.

Took the calliper off to find split in the big seal & the small one distorted, been searching for a set, Fowlers are on back order, nowt down on ebay, find some on square deals, dunno how good but better than nowt. Wonder how long this'll take.

There is some on ebay for 885/955 but dunno if they're same. I think the boy would say if they were. See link:

Im almost certain they are the same, they are a standard Nissin Caliper part, I used to have the Honda P/No's for them which are half the price and Fowlers supply them too. See If I can find them

This lot do em too:  https://www.triumphparts.gbr.cc/product.php/5733850/


Honda Part nos,     45133-MA3-006   (Large One)   45132-166-016 (Small one)  (Fowlers showing stock of both)

Great, thanks Tim.

I've ordered with Sprint as well as sq deals, see which comes first & looks best quality. Sprint looks to be proper Nissin parts.

I had a cam box seal set off Sprint, very good quality and less than half the price of Triumph

I fitted a set of EBC std organic pads 5,200 miles ago, they're wearing well. Now at A 9.2mm (new 9.7mm) & B 7.4mm (new 8mm). See link for A & B, EBC made the pads different thicknesses for no good reason, if anything, the B pad should wear more being on the piston side so first to hit the disc, that tallies with the wear on mine at 0.6mm B side & 0.5mm A side. The oe pads were replaced at 14,500 miles.

OE pads are both 8mm. EBC make them that way so they fit another make bike that requires different thicknesses

My slider seals turned up today, both of them, they both look ok, the ones from Sprint Eng say Made in Japan, so on the basis that they're better quality, I fitted them. They both look better quality than the oe ones.

Refitted the calliper got me bits from 1/4" to 3/8" then to 1/2" for the torqueing. Panic, felt like I'd stripped the thread, 1/4 - 3/8 adaptor sheared, lucky I had another.

Glad I did this cleaning job or wouldn't have spotted those damaged seals. Lovely clean in there now, 'til it goes out in the crud.

Don't it take ages to do these little jobs.

Remember when 'Made in Japan' was an indictment! Now it's quality. Like China. The writing is on the big wall you can see from space...

IMHO China has been right up there for a while. The reputation is because everyone is chasing the quick buck. They will build what you ask at the price point you ask for, which is reflected in the quality. Demand a $100 product for $5 and the quality will be rubbish. At $70 it will probably be better quality than the original.
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.
