So we are just in the final parts of putting the bike back together and having issues with the rear caliper.
The brake caliper we have is a brembo unit and we are stuffed if we can find a rebuild kit with a piston as ours is knackered. We've had a look about and our caliper looks like none I can find online, they seem to be Nissans.

Any help would be appreciated

Cheers
Sheena

Ooops, my bad. :coat:
Trouble is, Nick, you've created this online impression that you're a knowledgeable, friendly and approachable guy... and... it's stuck! lOl

Cheers everyone.
We actually bought the Nissan one thinking that was the one we needed, is it an easy swap over?

It's Nissin.
Niss-I-n make brakes.
Niss-A-n make badges to put on Renaults.
