brake caliper swap?

Post #1 by sonoramike » Wed May 15, 2019 7:24 pm

what 2 piston calipers are the common calipers to swap into?

The pistons on the stock brakes are pitted and the calipers need a rebuild, I'd prefer to spend the money instead to have more stopping power.

Search turns up nothing, but I have seen photos of bikes with swapped calipers so it seems someone has done this
