Front Brake Calipers - R/L difference?

Post by spetz » Wed May 24, 2017 12:34 pm

Hi guys,

I had my front brakes off getting sandblasted etc and just wondering how I can tell which brake caliper carrier is for which side?

They look identical and fit either side but there is a different casting number so there must be a difference.

EDIT:
According to Amayama the part numbers between left and right are the same... so maybe they are identical after all

Thanks Vectose, that's for the caliper itself but I was wondering about the caliper carrier (sorry the heading was misleading).

Given that Amayama has them listed as the same part number it seems it does not matter for the brake caliper carrier
