Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual: Rear Caliper Holder Shaft Wear

Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual / Brakes / Calipers / Rear Caliper Holder Shaft Wear

If the rubber friction boot is damaged, replace the rubber friction boot. To replace the friction boot, remove the pads and the caliper bracket.

If the caliper holder shaft is damage, replace the caliper bracket.
