Rear is different. The piston is a different size..

Thanks, PM'd Marc to see if he has some in. If not, I'll try to find the rear set.

FYI. I couldn't find a Kit for the rear, but using BP's list above, this is what you'll need to rebuild the rear at BikeBandit.com

2 Dust Seals;
#3: SEAL,WIPER
Part#: 517984-001
Quantity: 2
Price: $7.76 Each

2 Piston Seals;
#2: SEAL, Piston
Part#: 1488229-001
Quantity: 2
Price: $4.15 Each

1 Half Seal;
#4 SEAL PISTON
Part#: 517982-001
Quantity: 1
Price: $6.29

It appears that you can buy the whole piston set, 1769217-001 for $31.50, but you'll still need the Half seal (#4 above)

Wow that's a lot of money. You can skip the dust seal. I don't think I paid that much for both front seal kits..
IIRC I almost ordered twice what I needed. It's worth an email or PM to Ronayers ..

Let me add, sorry BP, wasn't trying to rain on your parade, but I figured it would be nice to add that info, so that when I DO go to rebuild my fronts/rear, I can come to one spot, and get all the info I need. Rather than jumping around the forum like a monkey looking for it. Now that I researched it, it's kind of a mute point, because I now know what I'm looking for on bb or ronayers

NO rain here.. I'd have deleted you

I'm glad you added the rear caliper info. I just think that it sounds too high..
I paid $13 for the front caliper rebuild kit and that has twice the seals..

I sent a note RonAyers to see if there is a kit. I still have no idea how you found the kit on there for the fronts. I agree, does seem a bit spendy.

what do you think the chance is that i'll need new pistons? the leak i have is very slow. i seen it started leaking a while ago when i noticed that my front rim was dirty, but i have yet to see any room in my master cylinder to add any fluid. i think thats a little bit of evidence towards it only being old seals, right?

steve, i sent that pdf in a email from my yahoo account...assuming i understood that address (capital letters = special characters)

Gytrdun..
I forget how I got that kit number but I seem to recall having a PM discussion with them.

There is no way to tell if your pistons are bad (though I doubt it) until you pull them..
