XT600 Calipers

Hi

I'm in the market for both brake calipers for my 1991 Xt600 - if anyone's looking to shift them on let me know. The front (twin-pot) is more important - the rear I may be able to salvage although I'll need the pivot piece that holds the bracket to the caliper (no part number on the parts fiche but the boot that goes on it is 5R2-25937-00-00).

So, Front caliper assembly in any working or workable condition (happy to recondition as long as the pad pins come out OK) - any offers? I'm in Australia but happy to pay postage.

Jim

Front is good mate - if you have pics that'd be great. As long as the pad pins come out ok, I'm flexible on condition...
