Part #'s are listed in several threads somewhere.

Front calipers, unless you pistons are really pitted, all you need is seals. Personally I wouldn't buy anything but OEM Suzuki parts since they aren't that pricey at all (and it IS brakes we are talking about)...

Go to www.ronayers.com and look 'em up.

The seal sets are around $10.

Same for rear.

If you can manage to have the bike down for a few weeks, I'd pull the calipers apart and order only what you need. It'll probably save you a few bucks if money is tight. Otherwise just order the seals and go for it.

What are you rebuilding? Calipers, master cylinder, both? Sirius probably has the front master rebuild kit, just don't have it listed on ebay. Probably just about any shop can order the rebuild kit for ya
