Brake work

Although brakes make you go slow, rather than fast, they’re still useful. If only so you can get through scruitineering at the local trackday. Anyway, here at TGR we’ve done a variety of brake stuff and will slowly be documenting it all.


Rebuilding front master cylinder
(Suzuki SV650s, also GSX-R600, GSX-R750, GSX-R1000, TL1000s, TL-R1000, RGV250 VJ21/22/23… and probably plenty of others!)


Rebuilding four-piston Tokico front calipers
(Suzuki GSX-R750, TL1000s, TL-R1000, RGV250, SV1000, and a great upgrade for SV650s)


Why you should service and grease sliding calipers correctly!


Clear master cylinder reservoir pipework? TYGON!
