Rear brake failure (part 3)

Recommended Posts

I have been having sequential brake failures in my 08 300xc and upon closer inspection I found a huge crack in the rear caliper. I guess the only thing to do is to purchase a new caliper. I found a used one on ebay for about $85 plus shipping. Motorsports.com is having a 25% off of OEM and I can get it for about $169. Any advice appreciated.

Personally, i would paruse the ktmtalk classifieds, mabe check with wold turkey on there and pick up a used one. Much safer than buying from ebay.

edit: I was on my phone and the pic didn't show up immediately. Is the carrier broke or the caliper?

If it's the carrier, replace it with a machined alum shark fin with carrier. Much stronger than the stock cast piece.

The only issue is when I took the piston out, it was really worn on one side. I probably need to replace the whole thing since the piston alone is about $40.
