6th Gen rear Caliper to 5th Gen?


Recommended Posts

I'm looking to grab a "spare" rear caliper, to strip/rebuild and paint while off the bike (leaving the existing one there).

 

Can't seem to find many reasonably priced 5th gen ones local to me, but can find some 6th gen ones.

 

I'm assuming the 6th gen rear caliper would be a direct bolt on to the 5th gen?

 

(Brakes are de-linked, so that side of it is not an issue).

It will probably bolt-on, but the pistons may not be the same sizes.  Honda definitely changed the front caliper pistons around over the years.  However, the rear brake is not going to be noticeably different unless you add or subtract a whole piston or something like that.
