HI aLL

I thought all RGV's (VJ21 and VJ22), don't know about the exotic VJ23.

Jan are you sure about the VJ21 caliper ? I bought one and it looks like this.

The hanger and caliper are one unit . Not tried fitting it yet.

Now we know. Deffo the VJ22 though. been checking it. Interesting arrangement on the VJ21, don't think I have ever seen a combined hanger/caliper before. As I have it I think I should offer it up and see, in the interest of science and all that. It didn't cost me much and there wasn't a picture so I'll give it a go and let you know. Who needs a back brake anyway my back wheel is usually skimming the tarmac, except when it's snowing.

B1 and B2 Use the same 2 piston calipers front and rear,
Vj22 uses this caliper on the rear,

rear caliper from other bikes

Post by KR-1R » Sat Jan 21, 2012 11:36 am

RGV VJ22 & VJ23 share the same rear caliper as KR-1 B, C, D (All KR-1's)

ZXR250a (Ribbed e-box frame) and GPX250 are 'similar' 2-pot sliding caliper however these two mount above the swingarm so the bleed vent is around the other way
