Hi, I need some help identifying what brakes I have so I can order the correct parts/rebuild kits, ( pm seem to list one rebuild kit but my local supplier is showing a kits for pre and post 1995

I know they are performance machine 4pots but can’t find any more specific info on my 3 piece calipers -

Any help would be much appreciated

You should probably post this over in the Ironhead Section of the forum. You'll get much better responses over there. Here's the link: http://xlforum.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=7

Good luck!

Hi, I had thought about that but as the brakes are not ironhead specific I thought it would be more apt to put them here.

In the end I Skype called PM and there tech department was able to help me on the phone, they didn’t reply to any emails I sent so figured red calling them was the best way to go about it and got sorted very quickly!
