BMW R100 Brake Cylinder
We're on our way through Canada, currently in New Brunswick. We travel with a BMW R100RT with a Ural Sidecar attached. The Bike is from '82. Here comes the tricky part:
We have a leaking front brake cylinder. It's not leaking much, but the brake fluid makes a mess while driving.
We've been at the BMW Dealer in Moncton, they sent us to Adriaan's Cycle. Adriaan was very helpful and friendly, great mechanic! We found out that the repair kit has a brake cylinder with 15mm diameter. But our bike needs a brake cylinder with 16mm diameter. And they don't produce them any more. So we would need to have the whole front brake changed. That would cost 370 CAD and the parts would need two weeks to be shipped.
Does somebody know where we could find a 15mm diameter brake cylinder for a '82 R100RT in the region of Quebeq or Ontario?
Thanks in advance for any suggestion! I hope I've expressed the problem well!
