what pretty nice pictures i love them
may i eventually take em for my homepage for illustrating better than now?
all the times i cleaned calippers i forgot to make such differentiated pictures - thanks to you for that!
and during the dozens of cleaning i only once needed a new rubber gasket (the thick one).
e.g. some picture how calipers (here form a fj1200) can be after 10 or more years

and the upper dust gasket with crap

after scratching off the crap by finger nails and cleaning with a "workshop towel"
View attachment 1608061
same i did to the lower gasket
built in again
and no problems till today
the tocico gen I calipers should be cleaned (deeply) every 12-15,000 miles
because they suck in the dirt, so to speak
