Welcome to the forum.

This is the only one I can find on FleaBay at the moment...

It seems very expensive and I'm sure I've seen them somewhere cheaper and for the full kit, instead of buying singular pots. What's that about?

Martin did a nice job of reconditioning some calipers a few months back, so he'll be able to advise the best.

Nothing is cheap when refurbing calipers i'm afraid and that's why folks buy more modern alternative calipers to fit.
There is a fitment list on here somewhere and there are loads that fit.

That's one of the reasons why I fitted those 6 pots to my bike. It was basically cheaper to replace them with some decent second hand calipers than refurb the originals.

I'm still sure Martin will advise that you can get them cheaper than those on FleaBay though.

Got to do mine as well soon, I shall be ordering a set of these, good price, but non genuine parts, works out about £25 for both.

Yes fitted a complete set, no problems but have not used the bike as it's all in bits still :( so can't comment on leaks etc, seemed about the same as most seal kits i've fitted. (quite like refurbing calipers, it's very theraputic :))
