My ‘corona time’ project. Plasti-dipped the wind deflectors black. Could not see paying $80?!? for new ones.
Is that Hermy's?
Nope, not Hermys.
if you can read the invoice i got with my bike its the yellow paper in one of my posts it has the name of the dealer at the bottom maybe its too small to read
Montgomeryville Cycle center
I’ve got a bike at Hermy’s waiting for me.
What did you get? any pictures
BMW did replace the rear gold brembo with a black for me.
All the rear calipers on GS/A's are Brembo's. Only the front have been replaced with Hayes.
Agreed, have to wonder why we haven't seen them yet. I'm surprised that BMW rolled the Hayes calipers out with Brembo rears.
True.. it's a goofy call.
Someone must have thought "lets swap the front but not the rear, that way.. we can still say it has Brembo brakes" and hopefully the owners would only be half as mad about it. Who knows; if anything, should have switched the rear first... they have a better chance being a "Hayes" mono-block instead of these lame split ones..
No pics... it was supposed to arrive there last Wed.
It's a 2020 R1250GSA HP, brushed aluminum tank, gold wheels, off-road tires, Ralleye low seat (I have a set of Sargent seats already), and the premium package. Oh and with the black aluminum BMW panniers.
I just went out to my 2019 bike and the front calipers are leaking its a demo with 357 miles on it.
Im looking for new monoblocks I wonder if the the dealer will just order new Brembo monoblocks and swap them in and call it good
Ughhh I'm dreading that! I saw someone a while ago post that his new bike came with front Brembo's... was hoping they were switching back. Not sure if that was just a joke post or what though.
I got off the phone with the dealer,
he said they will order me a new set of the Hayes but no Idea when they will be in.
I told him i wanted to put on Brembo calipers like the earlier GS has he said all they can do is install new Hayes.
I found a set of calipers for a Ducati Panigale from Canada for 249.00 with fresh pads they are silver , and look to be low miles MFG in 2016.
My Hayes calipers are black,
the number on the new calipers is the same as the 2017 BMW GS calipers 20 B 691/20 B 692
The only difference is that the mounting area will need to be opened up to fit on the fork mounting collar.
And i want to install new bleeders as well as the original lines.
I say keep looking so u dont have to bother trying to bore out holes to fit.
It looks like, from the other thread, that S1KRR or similar Brembo calipers may be even better option despite having to open up the holes to fit - good set of drill bits with the collar can take care of that issue in no time, even in home garage...
Anyone want a set of Gold Brembo calipers made for a 2016 GS,
Here is the Item #254449904987 this is the left sideon Ebay

So almost 3 weeks since someone bought an R1250GS? Hard times.
Skimming the bottom.. but we'll manage somehow...lol
