One other option if you're not comfortable buying a used caliper like myself is having it rebuilt

Call up Phoenix Caliper : 773.277.7772

I've used them to rebuild quite a few calipers, 3 of them being for my 91 MR2. I'm not sure if they do motorcycle calipers but I'm sure they do.

Turnaround time is pretty quick (usually 1 hour if you're waiting and local) and prices are reasonable.

The other option is buying a rear caliper on here with the bracket. I would trust SVR before ebay/CG.

Call up Phoenix and get a quote. If your bracket is bent though they can't fix that.

Hard to tell from the pics though if anything is damaged, maybe someone else can.

Ehh, instead of $300 you could honestly do it yourself for about $50-75.

Get a Delkevic exhaust for $150 (huge thread on here) and for $200 your back in shape.

I see what your saying about that part being bent. Are you sure its not just the brake pad.

If you were near Chicago I'd do the labor for free, so you can learn how its done. Maybe someone local might give you a hand.

Of course in the end it is what you feel most comfortable with.

Its just hard in general to notice a bend with pictures. Heck sometimes its hard to tell looking at it first hand.

How mechanically inclined are you? I can practically walk you through the entire process since I've done it too many times.

From an earlier post:

Replacing it would consist of taking off the rear wheel. Draining brake fluid. Swap calipers and or brackets. Put the wheel back on. Fill and bleed brake system.

You need a rear stand, remove the wheel, unbolt and swap calipers and brackets. Swap pads onto new caliper. Reinstall wheel. Bleed brakes, and adjust chain. Torque everything down and you're good to go.

Would take me an hour, if its your first time, leave yourself about 2.5-3 hours.
