    Brake piston fiber insert

    I'm rebuilding my rear brakes and need new Pistons and fiber inserts. Do these come in the new Pistons from service Honda? It doesn't show them on the microfiche. If not where do I find them, I've googled everywhere and found nothing. Not trying to run a coin in there as an alternative. image.jpg

    PNWrider, rear brake pistons (#'s 43107-HA2-016 and 43108-HA2-016) are discontinued. now if you can find some NOS pistons they may or may not have the fiber end. all depends how old they are. Honda eliminated the fiber on the newer stock. these were taken out of the package....

    this is interesting....I opened up a NOS rear caliper assembly (out of the box): no fibers.

    Also consider a caliper rebuild kit, worked perfect for my original calipers!

    The fiber piston inserts don't come in the caliper rebuild kits.
    overkill is an often underrated achievement

    No they do not, but he doesnt want to use a coin, so in lieu of not using a coin and not having access to fibers any more, the rebuild kit is a viable alternative..

    Damn I just noticed they're not making these anymore. Not sure how I missed that, looks like I might have to look into other options. Thanks for the input guys.
