Having gotten the letter offering the recall, I have declined.  I do not have salted roads where I live and I don't ride in inclement weather, anyway.  My brakes stop very well and I'm leaving well enough alone.  I'm 70 miles from the dealer and don't want to be bothered as I see no payoff in my circumstances.  Maybe I just like the ByBre logo on the calipers. 

I'll save the recall letter just in case.  Recalls for safety purposes do not have an expiration date in the USA.

Having that letter in your back pocket won't do you any good if/when the caliper locks up.

You might reconsider and not look a free safety recall in the mouth.

None that I can see, although having seen some of your work I'm a little surprised you're not going to polish them to a mirror finish.  ;) ;) ;)

An article from May, 2020 advised that Brembo had issues with their own brake pads failing:

“Triumph and Ducati recalled their bikes using Brembo brakes in the international market. The brake pads on the recalled units are said to be susceptible to corrosion and in some cases, it could even lead to the pad separating from the back plate.”

Brand snobbery will not protect anyone 😂.

The lack of a Bybre logo definitely separates out the new ones from the recalled parts. I was glad to get mine done even though I had to haul the bike on a 200 mile round trip on a trailer as it was below freezing around here.

It will be interesting to see if the Bybre logo is still present on future/new bikes sold in the recall area markets.

Whats next? A Harley sticker on a Classic 500? A second dummy cylinder made of plastic?

These losers have already done that

Looks like a chinese copy shop tried to copy the brembo logo. Look at the last o. That does not seem to be original. The diameter of the inner hole does not fit. No chinese copy is so cheap that it cannot be copied cheaper.

Fake vehicle parts are a great problem today.

That's an interesting read, thanks for the link. I wish they'd gone into more detail concerning how to spot the fakes, but then I'm sure the bad guys would use it as tutorial to improve their fakes.

Yikes!! :o

Lots of fake "Brembo" callipers and MC here in Thailand.  Price is usually the give away as it is not possible to buy a 300.00 USD MC for 40.00 - Even so one sees lots on bikes of all sorts
In a land where face and status is everything the fakes are a good earner for the cloners

Brembo have a code with their components, that one uses to go online and check that the part is genuine or a copy.

We even have fake women here in Thailand

For some riders in many locations your advice would be unquestionably sound.  Pulling the calipers every so often to retract the pads and inspect back and forth pad functioning is not a big deal.  And, as noted I don't ride in rain.

If this is a transphobic statement, can I just say I am not cool with that? Not really necessary in a discussion about brake calipers.  If it is a comment about child abuse...maybe also not appropriate?  Not trying to start anything here.  I said my bit - take it or leave it.

i think he speaks of fake women, not transgender women. Or do you suggest they are the same?

Good on YellowDuck for speaking up. And yes, if we're talking about life sized plastic or silicone injection mold female figures, non issue.

Did some hard strop practice on my bike today with the new calipers.  Have every confidence in them; they are rocks solid and haul the bike right down to zero very quickly.

This bike really doesn't need more brake unless you give it a LOT more engine.  I think upgraded pads would be plenty for 99% of us.
