Brembo F09 replica caliper (monoshock)
« on: June 23, 2020, 09:44:15 AM »
So I managed to find a seller that could produce a replica F09 caliper, and was not careful enough when ordering: I ordered the left side but did not consider that it was meant to be mounted behind the fork (as on R80/100s of the time, I guess).  However, my set up wants the caliper in front of the fork, but since it was a custom part, I can't return it.

Anybody want this caliper, or have an idea of where to sell it?

Don't want to rain on your parade but it has the wrong offset for a twin shock machine.

However, anyone with a K100 (or a monoshock of course) might want to speak with you.

Tony, I had intended for that monoshock owner to be me! However it also has the wrong offset for my bike.

Luckily, mgcycles did accept returns of both calipers, and I've rebuilt my old caliper and the primary cylinder, so I'm back in business.
