Huh
Thats basically what happened to the laptop I had the parts on it was over the shoulder kind of sort of, funny they dont seem to work after that, then again better than a dodgy Dell I guess.

Sitting on the fence 120 or 180 that is the question ?

I worked for McAfee for a few years when they bought us out, they sent us all laptops which had mcafee installed. I uninstalled it that night and installed AVG, I got a phone call the next morning saying if I don't have mcafee installed I would be considered a non team player ie fired. I told them go ahead, I'd rather be able to actually use my PC than have it lumbered by that shit software... I didn't get fired for a few years but their IT guys turned a blind eye as they agreed LOL

Hopefully Wolfgang has something appropriate.

Drikko - I may have taken his last one (15mm) a few weeks ago.  As Brett says, you can use the lipped piston seals from the front m/cyl repair kit.  Ducatipaddy has the rear PS15 repair kit listed...includes the vital circlip. http://ducatipaddy.com/page21.html

Thanks for that rob, Wolfgang says the 15 is not standard, so I'll measure up the linkages as per piets post in the other thread and maybe swap it for an 11 or 12.

RGS's were fitted with 2 types, 12 and 15mm.  If you are going to source a 12mm in place of the 15 you will need the correct secondary adjusting lever ( going through the plate as they are different )

For the 15mm set up the M.C. part number was  47 222 121 with lever part number 43 311 181 its 39mm long
For the 12mm set up the ; part number was 47 222 129 with a lever oart number 43 311 188 it was 55mm long.

Remember that the bolt spacing is 50mm as apposed to most modern ones which are only 40mm

A 12 mm will give you a better brake but if you dont swap the lever then you will have way too much travel and it will be too touchy.

The 15mm set up whilst having a woody feel and little travel actually is a good set up in that zero chance of locking the rear its more of a retarder than a true brake... I like it actually that way.. .as apposed to the 12mm set up on the Executive.

OK so the lever is 39mm so definitely need to stick with 15mm, I'll dig out my 15mm repair kit and find a suitable washer and circlip.

Circlip found at supercrap, washer found in the left over collection, now if only I could find the rebuild kit.

Hi, I was looking for the same rebuild kit some month ago - only source I found is Andy Wagner:
https://www.laverda-paradies.de/article-58-66-en.html
But in the end I bought a NOS rear MC at OCT – for a the price of two rebuild kits!
