Rear Brake Caliper Hunt

UPDATE: Found one


I've got a WTB ad going but I'm wondering if anyone knows of anyone who's got one in stock?

Also, I know the pads are the same for some of the thumper front calipers. Is the caliper itself the same but with a different carrier? As in, can I order one and transfer it from thumper carrier to mine? If so, which models are compatible?


OOOOrr, is there an aftermarket option?


Any help greatly appreciated. Otherwise, I'm stuck in rainforest Alaska until mid June. Was planning on heading north much sooner than that.

When I search the part number, it always comes up as 990. That leads me to believe it is model specific. Personally I would order it to be delivered where I plan to be in a week or so, and ride without the rear brake. I pretty much rode mine for the first year without using it. I have forced myself to use it lately in order to get more life out of my front knobbies. After road racing for many years, you get out of the habit of using the rears. I do use it off road when riding at speed.

The part number includes the carrier. They're separable. And maybe the 950/990 deviation is just the blackness of it. methinks 950 is silver. Anyone know?

The ones on eBay appear to be in Germany. Like shipping to Alaska just from the lower 48 wasn't enough, right?!?

Does anyone know if the caliper from a 950 SM will be able to come off it's carrier and mate in with the Adventure's? Looks like it.

Thanks, but that's not possible. Different carriers as evidenced by the pictures. All the internal bits are the same part number but the calipers themselves have a different #.

The whole unit from the SM will go right on there. The early ADV carrier did not have the hole for the ABS sensor, that's the only difference.

What's wrong with your present calliper? Did you melt it?
