    Need Some Help. Does anyone have a Right Front Caliper laying around? I need just 1.

    Its kinda like finding 1 shoe on the side of a highway. I strippd the caliper thread where the brake line goes into my caliper, I torqued it a tad to tight and not I have a slight leak. So i believe the only way to fix is to replace the right front caliper. If you have one that you can part with please let me know, I will buy it. Thanks Mike or Mike.maslowsky@gmail.com


    FIXED, re-threaded...

    I did this same exact thing a few months ago and had a local machinist put a heli-coil thread insert in. It was about $50 total for parts and labor. So far no leaks, but I have yet to take it back to the track.

    FIXED. Thanks for the help. I re-threaded the hole one size larger and put in a new one size larger bolt
