I think it is similar, but not 100% the same. can only talk about the fronts, as I only did them as of yet.

There is an excellent section on Brembo brakes in the book "Guzziology" by Dave Richardson. Covers all aspects of servicing and rebuilding calipers and mastercylinders as well as compatibility charts for brake upgrades.

Obviously copyright so you would have to buy a copy.

thanks for the feedback, glad if it helped. It is a fairly easy overhaul (well - if I can do it, almost everyone can), maybe easier than most people think.

Thanks. Next time I have a set of carbs in my hands, I will make one for overhauling them... ;-)

Thanks for that. How do you get the plastic reservoir off if it won't move?

Thanks Lothar,
I believe you have posted this before; got the instructions up in the shed and used them when I rebuilt my m/c years ago.

if you have removed the screws and the metal plate, it should come off with a bit of gentle force. Not to much, please. All it holds in place is just maybe some mud

Lothar,
It was mud. A couple of sessions in the ultrasonic cleaner loosened it up nicely. Thanks.
