Interpol 2 brake seal kits?

Posted by Chris Grimmett at September 26. 2013

I could do with replacment seal kits for the front and rear brake cylinders on my Interpol 2.  Andover does not have them.

Does anyone know the origination of the cylinders so that I can start to look elsewhere?  A lot of equipment on these bikes seems to have been Yamaha - did this include the hydraulics?

Hi Chris, IP2 Calipers are Brembo fitted to old BMWs and some MZs I don't think BMW will sell you a seal kit, Try ebay. Or are you talking about the master cylinders? Again front Brembo, rear unknown but maybe brembo also.

Thanks Dave.  Yes, it's master cylinder on the front and either the master or the pressure switch that isn't quite right on the back.

Chris,

Have you tried the club spares scheme......oh, hang on....forget that.

Yes, forget it indeed.  Anyone up to speed with the NOC knows that the Spares Scheme does not hold any parts for rotaries.

In case anybody dosen't know, it's because the EC sold them all.

If you can't get a front seal kit Chris You might consider replacing the whole lever/MCyl for a Honda item from ebay. I've just done this on my Commando, looks neat and has a span adjustment and built in microswitch for the brake. probably cheaper as well.

Back in your box Simon.

Thanks Dave, I guess that's where I might end up.  I run VFR lever assemblies on the Commando and as you suggest, it's a good move.  The only problem I see there is the need for a cable clutch lever rather than a hydraulic one unless I change only the one side which might look a bit odd.

What are you trying to say Dave, that you have not been critical of the EC selling off of the rotary spares? Surely not. Or are you advocating a new carpet to sweep EC mistakes under, as the current one must have a considerable bulge in it by now. Any body remember Philip Le Roux for example?

If anyone is still reading this conversation after its rather tedious hijacking off thread, here is some useful news.

It appears that Andover Norton does have the replacement seal kits after all, so problem solved.
