Hi Pete,

Do they come with any fixings? Also, do you know if they require special pads?

Thanks

They use the 17mm bolts that hold the oem carrier, so no extra fittings needed. I can add those if you want. Brake pad's are different to oem, easily bought tho.

Pete,

I will have those.
Would you be able to refurb them for me with someone you know before I come round to have them fitted?

I was encouraged to go Black quite a few years ago now but it was a pain in the butt; the card is metal, it is bigger than normal cards and does not fit into any machine anywhere in the world, and there is hardly any advantages over the customisable platinum..... glorious waste of time.

Precisely the issues a friends son had a few years back. But he kept it because his boss at the time didnt qualify for one so Paul loved using the card when they were out together!

Chris,

Yup, showing off is one advantage but I have found my Coutts card has the same effect.

There’s a company in Long Eaton Nottinghamshire. I’ll ring them tomorrow and see what they say. 👍

Update on the caliper refurbishment, this is the message I received from the company doing the overhall:

“Hi Ranjan, I have stripped the calipers down and the seals were in a real bad state, pics attached. I don't know how they have worn so bad in all my years not seen anything like this the seals had turned to jelly”

The only time I've seen seals melt like that was after someone had attempted to lubricate the pistons with something totally inappropriate.

The seals are designed to be resistant to brake fluid but that doesn't mean that they can cope with all solvents, either directly or within a grease or lubricant spray.

Dave,

My thoughts exactly; bet some form of petroleum based or mineral oil based product was used for lubrication.

They will be better than new when you get them back as SS liners will probably be inserted.

That's an eye opener! I've refurbished a few calipers over the last couple of years, but never seen seals as bad as those. You'll be glad to be shot of them!
