brembo caliper ID

Post by duck-a-tye » Sun Apr 12, 2009 5:32 am

Hi

Has anyone with knowledge of brembo calipers, and a digital camera made up a list of calipers (with pictures) to aid with identification? It would certainly help me, but I'm sure I wouldn't be the only one.

Cheers Tomo

Tomo, the Brembos are pretty easy to ID. Some things to remember are:

caliper halves are date coded with the year of manufacture on the inside

the later calipers had 'BREMBO' in large caps as a logo

Marzocchi forks take calipers without threaded mounting ears, Ceriani forks take calipers with threaded mounting ears

to be authentic they must have two bleed screws

I'm sure others will add more info. Jordan
