    Brake help

    Hi all

    Happy to have finally joined and make this my first post.

    I have a 1998 Mille which is giving me a headache. I recently had to replace the original brake calipers because they were goosed. So i finally managed to track some down on fleabay and they arrived in good time. They were a different colour, but as long as they stop me i dont care. So i am mounting them up, they go on the fork leg nicely, the brake disk is smoothly running through and looks good. I go to connect the brake hoses and.....oh....these dont look right. The end of the hoses have a 90 degree banjo which wont fit on the new calipers. I have now misplaced the original calipers (yes i know, how can you lose them) so all i can tell you is they were red and the original ones on the bike and i am guessing the brake hose mounts on top of the caliper. The new ones (which are the gold Brembo) mount the hoses on the sides. When i bought the new brakes they were sold to me as from a 1998, and i also bought new hoses. This may not be the case

    My question is, wot year do you think the replacement gold Brembo calipers are from. I need to order new hoses with a straight banjo on the end. If anyone can answer this i would be extremely grateful

    Ta

    Not sure if this helps but I have an 02 RSVR with these Brembos on. The Banjo on mine is about 45 degrees.

    Teflon you demon. You basically confirmed my suspicions, but the info on the banjos is a big help. I owe you a beer. You may have just put me back on the road quicker than i was hoping. Will let you know how i get on
