I just had the brake caliper recall done a few days ago... anyone who had this done notice that the new anodized calipers don't say "BYBRE" on them? Or is that just me and I got bent over the proverbial barrel?

When i got my bike from the dealer he said "this has had the brake recall done on it already"  I also noticed the calipers don't say BYBRE on them but didn't think much of it.

Nope, the replacements don't have a logo on them.

No logo on the replacements... correct.

Not my bike, but from a fellow owner... mine goes in this Wednesday.

Ride safe!

do we know if they're still "BYBRE" calipers?

They are another cheap lookalike Brembo copy.

True but will they give the same issues as the old ones.

They seem to be anodized a little bit better.

They still make me stop when I want them to. Which is good. We don't really use salt up here for the roads, so probably wouldn't have had too much a problem, unless I decided to drive on a beach somewhere. But figured it would be best to get the recall done so I can log it in case I sell it some day.

Brembo created the ByeBre branding yo separate them from the first tier Brembo products in order to OEM brake parts at lower prices to companies lik RE.

From what I understand Brembo didn't like the black eye of the ByBre calipers sticking and the replacement calipers don't have a logo.

Perhaps that sounds the end of the ByeBre brand

For what it's worth my 2018 Himalayan has unmarked calipers on it, they appear to be identical to the replacement Interceptor calipers, at least in outward appearance.

Who cares if they have the logo to be honest?  Is anyone going to be like, "wow, are those ByBre's?"  No....no one cares. lol.

I agree with you, Rick. I don't think anyone is impressed by the ByBre calipers on another person's bike. I do think that branding added value for buyers though. To lose that through a recall understandably creates a feeling of disappointment when a buyer placed value on that branding at purchase. What I really care about though is that my new calipers are reliable under all reasonable conditions up to modern standards. Hopefully these unbranded calipers achieve that.

The only branding I would look for is BREMBO. Not BRYMO, BRYMBO, BRDEX, BYRDWO, BYBRE, BYEBYE... Or some other chinese crap.

Its like a truck with a FROD branding.

Wasn't a question of showing off some brand label (or, off-brand-yet-somehow-still-branded label, in this case). It's a matter of changing something and not letting us know. RE made a big deal about the "BREMBO BRAKES!" so it is what it is. But, when you go into a dealer to get a part swapped out and the part is different somehow, I question what I'm getting.
