Thank you Ian, Thank you Nigel.

If it helps (although it might hinder) ....... on examination the brake pistons are all a bit sticky and the hoses are OE and therefore 26 years old, so over winter I am going to perform a full brake system refresh.

In preparation, I bought some spare calipers (this bike is A Keeper, so spares will be needed at some point) - which, along with the seals/banjos/pins/stainless bolts, involved a cosmetic re-paint - and while I was at it, I may as well have changed the colour, right? So they have gone from Black to the "Honda" Gold ....... and the HEL hoses are Carbon.

Oh, Crumbs! I really should have a had a holistic plan on the various colours: I feel like I am playing "one-move-at-a-time-chess" <sigh>.

While researching various things I found ........

OLDRR - 1992 CBR900RR REVIVAL - HoonTV

...... Mr Boxer seems to have had a highly consistent plan on his colour scheme!

Along with all of the other Black Powder coating (frame/swingarm) the fork bottoms & calipers are all black too, offset nicely with the U.S. style White colour scheme for the fairing & tank.

It has something of an Erion Racing 929 vibe to me. Good Job!
