Fzs1000 rear Caliper
« on: 30 September 2019, 11:03:27 PM »
Managed to get my hands on a fzs1000 rear Caliper for £40!!! Delighted with that outcome. it Has arrived today doesn’t look in too bad of shape but I want to strip them down and change all the seals. My question is how do I remove the pistons on these do I need to buy a blue spot tool also is that the same for the front as I will work on them too? Just refurbed my rear 600 Caliper if anyone is interested just needs new seals and bleed nipples.

Hi Red98, thank you for the information mate worked a treat use the air gun to pop the pistons out no issues at all just need to change the seals and will go about fitting the new set on the bike, I was really lucky to find it by setting an alert on Ebay just popped up I jumped straight onto it!!! I have attached some pics of the 600 caliper for you to have a look at if you are interested as I say just missing the seals and pads as I was to replace them.

Did you get your FZS1000 caliper fitted, any steps on what to do, i have one to fit but i believe there is adjustment needed to the bracket and spacers to be fitted.

You'll have to file a little bit off the hanger - not a big deal.
I fitted a couple of washers to centralise the hanger with the disc, it will be obvious when you come to fit it.
Altogether a definite upgrade.
FZS600, Speed Triple 1050, FZS1000, DT175MX etc.

do the washers go between the bracket and the caliper then? Do you know size needed and how many?

Please excuse the grubbiness of the bike, it's my winter hack.
2 ordinary 10mm flat washers, just try to get the caliper as central with the disc as you can.
