Took the front brake calipers off and noticed caliper bolts are different length.

Also, the top caliper bolt does not sit flush on the bracket, when fully tightened (when looking down from top fork tube). Is this normal ?

No that is NOT normal.

Those threads look as if they have been rounded off, too.

? wtf

How about YOU look in the parts manual??????

page C02 items 16 and 17........

so obviously they aren't the same

of course it was stupid of Nissin to make the caliper lopsided so you could put the bolts in the wrong holes

and strip the threads.......that's what happens when idiots design things.......

Murphy's Law rules

Those certainly LOOK like two differing lengths.
Perhaps they are simply swapped in the holes...

They should snug up tight at the torque spec.

Why has one bolt have a straight shank and the other is tapered? Is that normal because one of his bolts is not sitting flush with the caliber and that is not correct.I cannot remember what my bolts look like.Bad memory.:jsm:

Two different part numbers for the bolts...two different bolts. Seems pretty obvious to me they're supposed to be different. The question is not what moron designed it but what moron put them in without noticing one of them wasn't flush or worse yet...just left it that way.

Yes, Mitchy very strange. Lots of sportbikes owned, none had this type of setup.

I agree. This bike already had them installed when I purchased it.

Anyone have pictures of their caliper bolts I could compare ?
