XR600 caliper help!!!

My caliper seized up and I need to get a new one asap. I haven't been able to find one on ebay or locally, so are there any other years/models of bikes that will work on an '89 xr600? I saw an ebay auction where the guy claimed that a '97-03 cr125 caliper worked with pretty much every honda including all xr400's and xr600's. is this true? please help, I need to get back on the road!

Thanks! :applause:

I bought one from the same guy and it worked fine for me, and I won the acution for less than $20. I have an 89. Good luck!:applause:

My 98 XR6 caliper worked on my 1999 USD forks, so the cr125 should work on your bike.

good deal. i also heard that most xr600/650 calipers are the same. i hope thats true!

use the parts fiche online and check the numbers.

I did. They are all different :applause:

Anyone else fancy themself as an xr expert before I buy something?

They are likely to fit. Checking part numbers doesn't work too well with Honda. The part numbers change even though the parts are interchangeable.

Let me ask you this...do you think an '87 xr600 caliper would work on my '89? I'm guessing the calipers are all the same, more or less, just the brackets are different from upgraded forks every few years...

I have a '86 XR600R and it has a crf450 caliper which has hugely improved the braking and did not need modifying.

So does the caliper take the xr pads or crf pads (or are they all the same)?
