I’m now 1000 miles in on the Bol,and I’ve been reviewing some of jobs done trying to assess if the time/money spent was worth it.
Having ridden both Bols on the trip I have to say that the brakes are a massive improvement.
So what was involved?
First off the discs,brand new and semi floating by Braking.These are readily available on the Internet as are the venhill braided hoses which come with stainless banjo bolts.
New genuine Honda piston and pin seals were fitted to stainless pistons and pins.
Finally HH ebc pads and race spec dot 5.1 fluid finish the job.
The caliper bodies were cleaned in my ultrasonic bath and then assembled using rubber grease and silicone grease as appropriate.
Total cost SCARY!!!
The stainless bits were a steal at £28 per caliper and are fit and forget
