Stainless caliper pins
on: 22 November, 2021, 07:53:28 PM
Does anyone know if stainless steel pins are available for the front calipers for the 2010 CBF 1000? I can't find them anywhere.
Thanks, Jim.

I don't think these are stainless steel but they more than do the job.

Front Caliper Brake Pad Retaining Pin (AC4927)

Copper slip the threads and white silicone grease the grommet, clean with soap, water and brake cleaner as required.

Why are you specifying stainless steel?

The stainless ones are more corrosion resistant and less maintenance is required.

Fair play, for my two penneth the maintenance is minimal either way.
