Calipers commonly used on British motorcycles are seldom fitted with dirt seals, because it doesn't the CP2696 caliper actually comes with a warning and is marked "not for road use". Why? Because if used in the winter months road salt can damage the pistons if they are not cleaned on a regular basis and they do not want to be liable. While calipers fitted with stainless pistons are less susceptible to this than those with aluminum or carbon steel ones, all calipers should be treated as if this condition exists. 

AP CP2696 2-Piston Racing Caliper - This is the "non-handed" version of the original lightweight, AP Lockheed CP2195 aluminum caliper that has been fitted to race winners since 1965. This variation is one of the most commonly used calipers on vintage racers, with both pads and replacement parts being readily available. It is also a direct replacement for the heavier version used on the T140. It is of  "non-handed" design so it can be fitted to either fork leg and is supplied without brake pads. It is drilled and tapped for a 3/8" UNF brake line and the mounting holes are sized to be used with a 10MM bolt. Calipers on British motorcycles were normally mounted via 3/8" bolts meaning an extra clearance of around .025" per hole then using this caliper with these bolts. While not a catastrophic condition we prefer brake mounting be done with as little play as possible. We have had bushings made to bring the mounting hole back to the correct size for a 3/8" bolt and strongly recommend their use.  - #G0310 -  $269.00

Replica Caliper

Like the original, it uses 10MM mounting holes and can be fitted with the #G0312 bushings shown above when mounted by 3/8" bolts. - #G0330 - $179.00

Grimeca 2- Piston Caliper
(1050/55) - A non-handed Italian made version of the AP CP2696 with a 10MM thread for a male brake line and includes and adapter to allow the use of a Female Metric line connection. While the fining was eliminated, none of the performance was. It is designed to be mounted via 10MM bolts but the hole size is even larger than the ones on the AP caliper. If it will be mounted via 3/8" bolts, standard on most British models, we highly recommend use of our #G0303 bushings which we can, on request, install before shipping. Comes with brake pads but the Platinum ones lised below ae better for front applications - #G0300 - $210.00
