RGV 250 rear brake caliper

#1 Post by Bald Anthony » Fri Feb 17, 2017 10:52 am

Hello,

I am going to install the Suzuki RGV 250 swing arm to my RZ350. I would like to rebuild the rear caliper or find out the cross reference to a rear caliper that was sold on the U.S. Is there a rebuilt kit that is available in U.S? I would appreciate any information. Thanks.

Anthony

eBay likely your best bet unfortunately. Can try your Suzuki dealer with part numbers but they will likely not have access to a fiche. Then again, I know the large local dealers here won't be bothered to open a fiche for older bikes anyways these days.

Does anyone have part numbers for the rear brake pads that will cross reference to a rear caliper/pads that were sold in the U.S?

Thanks

Go to google and search for RGV250 fiche. There should be some out of the UK. Then search the part number you find to cross reference...

It will take you as much time as it would take anyone else to dig out their notes from a build to provide the information...
