Tada! The KR-1 S brake Calipers have been refurbished. When they were purchased some of parts were missing (Both left and right Brake Pad Springs, and the four Brake Pad Spring Screws).

Metal Gear Sintered Pads

  • A set of sintered MGear Brake Pads were purchased to go with the new MGear front Disks

KR-1S front brake caliper seal kit and brake pistons

Whooo hooo! Just a quick update on the KR-1 S front end. 8 new stainless-steel brake pistons arrived today with a complete KR-1S front brake caliper seal kit. The bolts are still going through the plating process and the caliper assembly is in the queue for glass bead blasting and painting.
