    Thanks I've seen the aftermarket ones do that, but not an OEM part. When I get around to stripping it down, I'll check it :)

    hi, do you still have the big brake kit for sale? If so would you be willing to arrange a courier from your end? If its cheap enough then I'll obviously pay up front for the parts and postage. If its cheaper would you be okay leaving out the disks and pads as i would just get new ones anyway?

    Thank you for the advice on the hoses, I'm slowly working my way through them and gaining power back, however it's still not quite right. I'm thinking a new actuator is in order. Any suggestions as to a good upgrade.
    Great vid on the rr day. The missus said thank you for making her feel included.
    Thanks
    Gareth.
