Hello,

Trying to source caliper rebuild kits for my 2003. My usual sources don't have any, I am in Canada but I can buy from US if needed. Where are you getting your rebuild kits?

I order through bikebandit.com the individual oem parts need. Maybe check EBay for a complete”kit” ; however, might be hard to judge quality.

Pricey...true. But we are talking about a critical component that needs to function flawlessly.

I went OEM, but I’ll be curious what you eventually find myself!
Can I ask what you paid to do it this way? Looking at Partzilla the OEM parts will be $134+ per caliper. I'd be looking at $400 CDN for the pair.

On Bikebandit.com I spent $117.70 US for the 8 seals, 8 dust seals, and two caliper-half joining seals; enough to replace the rubber components of both front brake calipers.

I’ve always been told to use only brake fluid to lubricate brake seals. The grease products will contaminate the brake fluid, and attract dirt.
I use it on the rubber seals only for assembly. I've used it once on the caliper pistons and it was a mess, so I agree with you on that. It's safe to use with brake fluid. Brembo includes a pack with its rebuild kits.
