    Does such a kit exist? I've been striking out in my search so far.

    I looked for a kit and struck out also. I can find them for the old 2 piston F series but not the new ones. You could try contacting Brembo USA to see if such kits exist. Lawyers have become involved and rebuilding brake components has become tricky.

    Thanks John, the latter part of your statement is correct, and the reason that Brembo USA does NOT offer any such kits. You can thank all of the morons who didn't know what they were doing, and chose to sue Brembo when their rebuild attempt failed.

    You might luck out with Google or a Euro vendor, but caveat emptor when using eBay. They are notorious for Chinese Brembo knock-offs.

    When I was last in Italy, I had a conversation with a man who is a corporate manager for Brembo.

    Brembo is an Italian company and they do not sell any brake rebuilding components of any kind in North America.

    The terrible fact is that we are the most litigious society in the world and the profit margin in rebuild components is a paltry fraction of revenues from their OEM business and not worth the legal exposure.

    I have in the past, been able to obtain rebuild components from Italy, but it always involved having a friend in Italy, purchase them for me, then forward the parts to me in the USA.

    This is why it is always nice to have internet friends in various European countries!

    I had the same thing with some parts I got in the UK that would not ship to the USA, but when I obtained a “mailing address” in the UK through an internet company, MyUKmailbox, that offered that service, I found the workaround.

    My parts first shipped to my UK address and then they charged me to forward the parcel to me. It cost a little but I could get what I needed.

    In that case, I was able to surf English vendors and order directly in English, via credit card for shipment to my UK address, with no hassle.

    Try investigating that.

    This from LesP on another forum, a UK seller that sells to USA and not UK, look at the shipping. BUT a source I didn't know. Brembo told me it was racing equipment and just buy a new one. That was 10yrs ago.

    Aren't they the same calipers as on the 1200GS?

    My mechanic got a rebuild kit from Ducati, but that was ten years ago.
