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.

I originally got the Triumph stoppers with this in mind:

Why are you in such a hurry to stop?

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 ...

Making up for time lost with the standard setup...

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

really old thread bump

Does any one know what the thickness of a nissin caliper or brembo 4 piston caliper(not the type on a ( r1100, 1150 or 1200 but like the brembo calipers on ducati monster(non radial)). I was thinking of upgrading my brakes my Quota(gasp!). I tested spare 6 piston caliper to checkif that would work. I placed it on the rotor and it hit the spokes It was way too big. Measuring from the middle of the caliper to the edge(half a caliper) it was about 44MM. I have seen Quotas with 4 piston brembos and Nissins. I appreciate the help.

I've just had a quick look at my Tokico 4 pot (ex SRAD GSXR600) and the a/o thickness of the calliper is ~83.75mm, and the mounting face of the calliper is offset from c/l by ~23.75mm ... hth

Somethings are not always as they seem - some "four piston" calipers are actually two piston sliding calipers, and there are no pistons on the spoke side, just a bracket to hold the pad.

Some Honda's, like my 93 VFR, or Interceptor, had them, they are unloved and usually sell on Ebay for less than the cost of the pads in them, but they would still stand a 250 kg bike on its nose if called upon.

Do a search - someone fitted the to a Beemer not that long ago, maybe on this site somewhere.

I check my clearance at 39.5mm to touch the spokes. This is from the side of the rotor not the center of the rotor. I've seen pictures of Quota with Brembo's and Nissin's.I'm a bit perplexed. I'm wondering if these bikes had bigger rotor's?



Thanks,
Les

I'm of the mindset that, larger rotors trump different calipers . Did the 4 puck r1100 upgrade on my GS . 30% better braking IMO . Then a large rotor from a Honda 929-954 was even more an improvement than the caliper . Just my experience .
