Cool. If my car budget can make it through winter, I'll be in touch in the new year.


Please thank the folks who help. :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Can't go wrong, I've had a normal front set (later chnaged to trajets from Robbo) and a rear set + new hand brake cables.
Should keep the car going another 60k+ going by the life of the originals.

I would advise new discs + pads if going Trajet however as when I changed up to these it killed my discs in around 200miles. They had already done 30k mind you.

I've got the drilled and grooved discs to fit from Aumeisters and I don't think they have done much mileage
Also bought Mintex pads today to fit at same time.

Robbo,

How much would it cost for a complete set of front and rears - for everything including painting? (Do you do Kawasaki green)

Need to completely do mine as had new disks all round and they are binding like you wouldn't believe, fuel economy is shot and it feels like the car is being held back.

Thanks

You just want std fronts and what year is yours?

I'll see if that green is available in caliper paint, I'm pretty sure it would be

Yeah, just after getting a refresh on the brakes all round as if the rears are binding chances are the fronts may be too.

I'd refurb them myself but as i have just moved i have zero space in the garage right now.

So just standard Front and rear - calipers and carriers

Thanks

Yeah if you could check that 'd be great, it should in theory be the hook on type but better to be sure

Hi Robbo,

If this worked you should be able to tell which type.

Cheers

Robbo doesn't do this any more but drop a PM to Neil Cartlidge ( HCDNeil ) who now carries exchanges in stock .
