The ProblemThe rear brake caliper on the Triumph Bonneville, T100, Thruxton and Scrambler is positioned under the swinging arm. This is an ideal place for the caliper to suffer the effects of road grime, grit and winter salt. This wet weather cocktail causes corrosion of the caliper sliding pins and subsequent seizure or part seizure of the caliper. Unless you're keen to strip the caliper down on a regular basis, the product of caliper seizure is excessive heat build up and premature pad/disc wear as the caliper doesn't fully release pressure from the pads.The SolutionTTP developed the UpNOver aluminium billet rear caliper hanger which come's complete with an Earl's high quality extended length steel braided rear brake hose with stainless steel fittings and copper washers. The UpNOver places the caliper out of harms way on top of the swinging arm, this location gives the caliper more protection from the elements that cause corrosion. The UpNOver has been sculpted to give a solution that is strong, functional, fits perfectly and is 30% lighter than the OEM part to help reduce unsprung weight. It is available in hard anodised black finish.
