Need a number 8 in decent serviceable condition. Don't need pads disc or lever unless you don't want to split a set.
Don't want E4 or mono, has to be this shape:

Will take a nice scratch free number 3 at a push, but really want an 8

That's boxxer mount right?
May be interested depending on whether I can get a back half or somw other donor caliper as Im pretty sure I can use a 6 if I mill off the extended threaded section of the mount as that's the only difference between 6and 8right? :?

Object of the exercise is to run a 185 disc on the back without an adapter.

Actually looking at a photo I think I would end up with something like a 3 if I milled down a 6 :lol:

Hello I run a #8 on the front with a 205mm and a#3 on the rear with 185mm
are you sure you're after the right caliper ? it might be different because it's on my big travel bike but it's just a thought, I also have a #6 half.

Yeah a 3 on the back of mine needs a 165. I'm using a 3 and a +20 adapter currently.

i think ive just bought a complete number 8 rear from ebay,
i say think, because it was pretty poorly listed/described and is supplied with a 160 disc which wont be much use with anything other than a mono number 3 :roll:

ill see what arrives before i mark this thread as sorted :lol: :wink:

Comedy!
It showed up today, so I am sorted.
Kinda...,.....
Described as a fully serviced number 8 rear with rotor, it turned up leaking from the m/c cap and the bleed nipple, no pads, and a worn 160 budget rotor :roll:

Gotta love eBay!

Good job I have pads and a seal kit here!
