    Hi all

    Finally stripped and freed off my rear calliper.. It's all okay now but, in my experience, it will partial sieze again sometime in the future... So if I replace it are refurbished calipers okay? or should I always go for Honda new?
    and if refurbished calipers are acceptable any recommendations ..
    Thanks

    Just get the caliper rebuild seals take the pistons out clean make it all shiny if you can and the new seals will give it a new life. if you don't want your hands dirty just get refurbished ones and exchange your old ones.

    I rebuilt mine with new seals and new stainless pistons for about £30 a side, worth it if you have the spare time. I don't know what model you have but the facelift ones are easy as there is no handbrake parts in the caliper. I get my brake bits from Brakes International.
