Brake caliper rebuild
« Started on: 20-Jun-21, 20:49 »
Wanting to rebuild my brake calipers with new pistons and seals. I will also strip and powder coat them as well. Any info on where to get parts from ? I think I need to order 1981 cbx1000 caliper parts as cmsnl doesn’t have them as Cx500 parts

These calipers were used on many models.  The important part is to make sure that the groves that hold the rubber parts a completely clean with no evidence of white material at all evident.  A wire brush wheel on a Dremel does it well.

If they are the dual piston calipers you can still get all the parts at your local Honda dealer 

Same calipers used on CX500 Turbo and CX650 as well as some of the CB900’s from memory.

The piston seal (inner seal) is part number 45209-166-006

The piston dust seal (outer seal) is part number 45109-166-006

The pistons are normally OK.

 I have never replaced one, just clean them up and re-install.

Let me know if you want the part number and I will look it up for you.

My pistons had corrosion when I built the bike 10 years ago. (Was stored in a field). Doing a nice build and not leaving anything in the “I should have done pile”

As you also need pistons you may be better with a kit from wemoto that includes new stainless steel pistons.

Wemoto also have other rebuild kits available if that suits better.

Recently installed the Wemoto TRK kit, went in without any problems and made a world of difference.  New braided SS brake lines also helped.
