    Default '96 Royal Star front right brake assembly

    I just bought a used '96 Royal Star Tour and the front brake was messed up and I messed it up further trying to fix it :-( Does anyone have either one or a set of front brake calipers (everything but the disk) for reasonable? Thanks!

    I have a stock master & front caliper set off my '99 RSV sitting on the shelf in the garage. I'll try and get a few photos tonight when I get home from work.

    Hello,

    I was wondering if you got the front brakes completed. I have a 97 RS and had the front rotors replaced and bothe calipers rebuilt. When I got the bike back it felt like the front brakes were a little spongy. I called back to the Yamaha service center and they said it could be some air in the system. They said they sometimes will tape the brake lever filly back to keep pressure on the system and let it at least overnight. I just untaped it and it felt much better.

    Just wanted to let you know of a quick and easy routine that might cure spongy brakes.
