    1998 K1200RS Caliper Problems

    Need some help please.

    I have what my mechanic believes to be a perished caliper joining seal that's causing spongy brakes. Apparently, with the brakes bled and under pressure, you can see fluid seeping on the join.

    He says neither Brembo or BMW can supply him the seals... does that sound right? Does anyone know a seal supplier or caliper refurbisher?

    Looking forward any advice you can give me.

    Thanks

    Duncan
