Hi Dave,

I put the 'pistons side by side' calipers on my 95 1100 because you get better braking. They need a bigger disc though (280mm v 265mm from memory), but presumably you have them on your spoked wheels.

It took a while to hunt mine down on eBay, but I got there in the end. Other Yamahas use the side by sides, XJ900s for one.

good hunting,

Jonno.

Dave,

there are 2 on eBay UK right now, for XJ900s between 94 and 03, they fit 750/1100 Viragos. I hope it's the LHS you want because that's £35. The robbing barsteward selling the RHS is asking £75.

Still having trouble with finding these calipers iv got both calipers now but need the calipers hanger for the right side getting a bit desperate as entered into the malle mile and dirt quake now

If anyone knows of any or seen any for sale would be great I'd even by as a pair it's that all there is

Thanks again

Dave
