Thumbs up Refurb Brake Calipers

Hi guys/girls, Just a quick post to recommend a brill company "Powerhouse Automotive". Just had my 6 pot "Tokico" Callipers totally refurbished by them. A fantastic job And yes i know they are Jap Callipes! (For my sin`s i also own a GSX 1400 Suzuki) as well as my `98 916 Bip. The point of this post is that they also refurb BREMBO Callipers!! Anyone out there needs there brakes rebuilding to an extremely high spec, get in touch with em. The man to speak to is..... David Cattell (Workshop Manager) 01246 260665 email..dave@powerhouseautomotive.co.uk or ....www.powerhouseautomotive.co.uk Hope this is of help to our members. Ride safe Bruce.

Ah glad info on refurb callipers was of help. Additional info...... Cost for 2 Tokico 6 pots was 380. That includes vat. Had both callipers fully sorted with Stainless Steel Pistons, new OE seals, Stainless Steel Calliper Bolts/bleed nipples. SBS brake Pads (came fitted) & re Painted Gold (think they Bake paint on) Fantastic finish,as new (if not Better!!)
Guys at Powerhouse extremely Knowledgeable and helpful. Makes a change to speak to people who know what they are talking about when it comes to motorcycle brake systems. Give "Campo" my regards hope extra info helps him. Cheers Bruce.

Thanks Bruce and Kev, I've managed to get my hands on a replacement caliper now but it's always good to have people's recommendations
