    Default Good source for replacement rear caliper? (PN 69100-08C00-999) Snapped bleeder screw.

    So I was trying to swap the pads on my 81 GS1100, and one of the bleeder screw on the rea caliper was seized and snapped off flush with the caliper. I used my left-handed drill bit, and even my good bolt extractors, but all that accomplished was to break the tip off my extractor off inside the bleeder. At this point I've given up and decided to just reaplace the caliper. Of course, it looks like its out of production from waht I can tell. I'm finding a few sellers of used ones on Ebay and elsewhere, but would really like something NOS so I'm not jsut dealing with someone else's stuck bleeder screw. Anyone have any suggestions for a good source for a reaplcement NOS rear caliper, or at least a good condition sued one from a reliable vendor that I can trust? Thanks!

    I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.

    I think rebuilding a used caliper is a good option. Pretty sure that rear caliper was used on several models.
