Bremszange rechts von NISSIN that's German for brake caliper right side from Nissin. I wouldn't give up just yet. as it may just be the wrong photograph.

*Edit* just had a look at an RF900 and it is indeed the right side, for an RF900. There may be some others there, if you check.

*Edit* Again :-) he is also selling the left one, which is this case is the one you want.

Triumph calipers





Casting looks a bit different to what I've seen from the Nissin pics, notably the position of the hydraulic line. Bolt hole spacing is 83mm.

The twin disk setup may be a touch bit of overkill for me riding solo on an 80.

After all, there aren't too many autobahn's in Northland ...

The original equipment experience, 2 up and loaded, made me start at overkill and go from there.

Anybody still watching this thread?

I have a Tokiko 6-pot installed and its great. The only problem is that brakes shoes don't last long.

I am thinking of trying Spiegler XBK5 pads. Anybody know anything about these? Will the wear out my rotor prematurely?

Thanks
Jon

If they are semi-metallic then I bet they would wear the rotor. As pads are cheaper then rotors I always run organic pads and replace as necessary
