it fits mine...but it has a R100GS front end. Options for the G/S are somewhat limited, to either the larger 320 mm disc w/ adapter (MAP I believe), or the Harrison 6 Pot caliper, Beemer Guru used to be able to get those, but they are EXPENSIVE!! Plus takes three sets of pads.

I have picts at the link below of the 320mm larger disc, plus the Harrison but it's on the GS front. Yea I had the Harrison 6 pot but sold it and prefer the 4 pot Brembo.

yes but finding used left ones at reasonable prices has been difficult. It's sporadic getting them. If you find a left one you can send it to me and I'll disassemble clean pistons and seals,pressure check and machine for you ($150 S&H included in USA). Of course I cannot guarantee the one you send will be good, but I will pressure check before machining. If you buy used try and make sure it isn't from to harsh and environment...i.e. salt water or where the calipers are extremely discolored.

If pistons are damaged I may be able to replace with extras I have at extra cost, but that just depends. Of course IF you want to buy a rebuild kit from BMW (p/n 34112331631) I can rebuild it at the same time. Kits include seals and pistons.. for $88. If you want new brake pad pins(p/n 34112330418) or bleeder and dust cap (p/n 34212330310).but make sure the caliper you buy hasn't been split!!!

You're in luck, got a call yesterday and I have one which has just been machined and ready for me to pick it up.

PM me if you want it.

Finally got around to installing the 4 pot I bought months ago. Sweet ! Perfect fit and great grip.

Been doing these for 5 years now...you'd think I would have done this a long time ago, Finally made a testing fixture for my caliper upgrade for the R100GS. It didn't even cost me anything in materials as it was scrap that was laying around. Not even burned or cut while making this.

Finally, I've had major problems splitting the calipers and getting them to seal properly. I've avoided splitting calipers unless it's leaked at the halves. Three to four have leaked over the years and when that's happened there was no choice but to split them. Then try unsuccessfully to get them to seal. In the past this has resulted in keeping seals and pistons but throwing the caliper body away and lost money on the purchase price. Well finally I have confidence that splitting the calipers is no longer an issue. So now all calipers will be split for a more thorough cleaning and easier assembly. Calipers ARE so much easier to service when split and easier to reassemble. Try getting the piston seals back in when the caliper isn't split...it takes time and patience and very little fingers. Once reassembled full hydraulic pressure is kept on the caliper for at least 24 hours and if pressure holds then it's good to go.

It took me a little searching to find the appropriate sized o-ring for the caliper halves as the o-rings aren't readily available at most places. Some of the caliper to piston fit clearances are very tight and it has been an issue getting the piston back in the caliper. It's not been that common but maybe 2-3 have been quite tight. So after 5 years I continue to find little ways to make cleaning, reassembling these things better. No it's not rocket science, but one can't help but learn a few things over the years.

just got 4 pairs of brake calipers in. This is the rt and left side, so this means spare parts!!! Extra pistons and seals!!! Learned a new trick in getting the stubborn calipers apart.

So much better doing a bunch at a time. Four left calipers came in today, waiting for the other 3. Then off to the machinist. Will have a total of 9. I haven't had that many all at once in a long time. Plus with this many it's worth my while to offer a complete kit, Venhill stainless lines (early and late 4 each though) and Galfer pads.




Right calipers split getting ready to be stripped for parts.





Fixture for retaining pistons when high pressure is applied, you don't want them flying across the room.






Pistons and seals, pistons ready to be cleaned, buffed and inspected. Seals ready to be cleaned and closely inspected.
