The XT600 ( all models ) used the same brake caliper from 1990 to 1995. The part number was 3TB-2580W=00-00. The cost was approximately $165.00. Your best bet is to Google " motorcycle salvage yamaha ' and " vintage motorcycle parts yamaha " and " classic motorcycle parts yamaha ." I checked "Babbitt's" and they don't have one. At least you can see the caliper assembly there. You will be hard pressed to find any other caliper that will simply bolt on. Could you go to a machine shop and let them repair the caliper? New bleeder valves are availabe at Babbitt's.

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part and/or the notation "Not Available" is in the description, the part is not in stock.

The rear brake calipers on my 1992 Crown Victoria are sitting crooked on the roters. How can I fix it

The calipers are not bleeding back into the master cylinder. I suggest a flush with new fluid first, then bleed the system, starting first at the antilock, the the right rear, the left rear. This is a common problem when a complete brake job is not done.

Opening brake calipers to change rear pads

There is a special tool required for this job. It expands a plate between the piston and caliper but also has a threaded rod through the middle that allows you to turn the piston clockwise as it gets pushed in.

Rear brake caliper is not engaging. plenty of brake fluid.just bought new brake pads, and still no breaking.

Try bleeding the caliper. open the screw and squeeze the brake allowing fluid out and then closing the screw before opening the brake lever again you want a nice stream of fluid so have plenty of it around. maybe a seized caliper doubtful though

Remove the two bolts that hold the rear caliper into the rear brake caliper bracket and lift caliper out. Pay particular attention to how the brake pads and anti-rattle hardware are positioned in the rear brake caliper bracket. Replace the pads and anti-rattle hardware with new parts.

You must compress the brake caliper piston back into the caliper. Do this by using a C-clamp or large pair of slip joint pliers. Make sure you cover the brake caliper to prevent damage to the paint. With the piston fully compress back inside the caliper, carefully reposition caliper in rear caliper bracket without disturbing the brake pads. Install the two bolts that holds the caliper into the bracket.

Depress rear brake pedal slowly until you get a full pedal. Test brakes before you ride the bike. Improper servicing of the brakes can cause serious injury or death. Make sure you did the job right.

1992 Honda Prelude Si brake caliper piston prob

As your car has a handbrake fitted to the rear calipers,you will need a piston wind in tool to retract the piston fully back into the caliper as when you adjust your handbrake the piston automatically winds itself to the required position for usage without this tool you are getting nowhere,so get hold of a tool to do the job and you should not have problem unless the piston has totally siezed on the screw then you will have a problem being the only way to repair would to be a new or refurbished caliper.

Removal of brake calipers and pads on 1992 xj6 jaguar

Hi Jasa

Unless you are mechanically competent, I would not advise you carry out this procedure yourself, but leave it to the professionals.

If you are mechanically minded, and competent, the pads are relatively easy to replace, as follows.

Jack up the vehicle and put on stands, if you don´t have access to a hoist?

Remove wheels, and open the hood, put some kitchen roll around the brake fluid reservoir, to catch any excess brake fluid, when you push back the brake caliper pistons, if it´s been overfilled.
On the front brake caliper's, you are best to put in a little lever between pads and disc, and ease back the piston to fully retracted, unless you have a small G clamp which will do the same job when caliper is adrift.

Remove the 2 x 13mm caliper securing bolts and swing off the caliper, and support with a piece of wire, don´t just let it dangle on the brake hose.
Remove the brake pads, and sensor wire, check the caliper piston dust cover for splits, and clean caliper, housing, etc, and disc, with brake cleaner.

Fit the new brake pads to the caliper, and refit with 2 new securing bolts with blue lock tite, (normally supplied with the B/Pads.)

The rear caliper´s are pretty much the same as the front, although you can just undo the top bolt and swing the caliper back, but I usually remove both, for ease of cleaning, and inspection.

After rear caliper´s and pads and sensor wire, and new bolts are fitted, pump the brake pedal with the ignition on, and just run around, and check there are no leaks from the caliper pistons.
Check the fluid level, and lower with suction syringe if necessary.

By the way, 1. When did you last change your brake fluid ?
2. Adjust your front wheel bearings end float ?

You could do this now before you fit the wheels.?

Let me know if you wish the details for that too ?

Good luck !

Don´t forget to give me a FixYa rating please !


Then refit wheels, drop down the car,
