Help....!

I'm signed up for the STT Joliet track day this Monday and found out the spring pad on my '03 GSXR1000 is missing from one of my front calipers. It's the pressure clip that holds the pads in place, two on each caliper. Ordered one from Chicago Cycle last week but might not make it in by tomorrow.
Any help....?!?!

I just checked part numbers on Ron Ayers and it is the same part from an 04 GSXR 600. I can pull one off my other bike if you need it. I will also be at ABCC on Mon.

My track bike doesn't have those things anymore, and it works just fine.

Do the newer bikes actully NEED these?

have you checked with any other dealers?

ive got the same bike and i honestly havent looked at the caliper assy too hard recently so i cannot remeber for sure but i know on my old car it had springs in the calipers for keep the pads from chattering. the spring might serve the same function here.

what time are you done with the track on monday? I might be able to loan you the clip

That was fast...! I was told it was part #59151-18G00. Does that match Ron Ayers? I really appreciate the help. Going to give Chicago Cycle a call a little later to see if it came in...not real confident though. I'll be trailering the bike with a black Chev.Prizm...(773)480-1927.

Yeah...probably could run without it, especially if it were the rear, but thought if I could find one I would put it on.

I got part #59141-18G00. Just let me know, it would only take a minute or two for me to pull the hardware off.

^^^^^^+1. They are not needed on the track. You may hear a bit more pad "chattering" than you were used to but nothing to be worried about. Most guys pull these out to let the heat disipate out of the caliper better.

I actually lost two of them on my front caliper and the bolts ended up falling out taking the brake pads with them result


NO BRAKES

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

That would definitely SUCK That's why every bolt and is safety-wired on my front end, including the pad carrier pin.

Thanks for the info....sounds like most people think I could get away without it, but would still like to throw it on. bhauditech, I'll shoot you a PM tomorrow after I call Chicago Cycle. They said they would give me a call if it came in and I didn't hear from them so it looks like I'll be needing it
