    Bought one on ebay, also had silicone racing fluid put in, and after reading posts on here, leave a railway sleeper on the brake pedal when the bikes parked up.And.......For the first time in 3 years I have a back brake that works for longer than 300 miles...

    When MoT time comes, I just hand a bag of wall tiles on my brake pedal overnight - works a treat.

    I just cleaned the piston/caliper,de glazed the pads and fitted the heat shield from AF1 and I have no complaints about my brakes at all.

    They just work like you'd expect them to,no fading,no pumping,nothing needing hanging on pedals, just a solid reliable brake pedal.

    Can't understand all the problems people seem to have,I'm sure it's all down to bleeding them properly.

    Yes agree....Said many times over the last 3 years 'bleeding brakes.'
