I've got an Up & Over bracket on there now but it'd be best to refresh the parts to keep this from being an issue.

I've heard Honda ST1100s share the same brake caliper, but that may just be for the pads: looking at pictures online they don't appear to be the same caliper. Anyone able to shed light on this?
It's a sliding calieper and the pins need lubricating every few thousand kms i do mine every time i change the oil any brake specialist will have the correct grease
