Due to a seized bleed nipple that sheared! I need a 16v or K1100 front right brake caliper.  I have pads and a new piston kit and a new bleed nipple so just need the caliper. It is the four piston one that has BREMBO cast into the outside.
I will start looking on ebay Germany and UK, but if anyone has one laying around I would rather buy from a forum member.

When I was searching for a pair, I found that those listed for K-series were at premium asking prices. I can only surmise that the fact that they are a popular conversion for R100/80GS has made them a bit scarce.

Although BMW list different part numbers for what looks like the same calliper fitted to the K1200 and the R800/R1100 before they swapped to the next generation, there appears to be no fundamental differences.

I took a punt and picked up a pair from an R800R for forty-five quid (posted). Before refurbishing them I checked that they fitted and they do. The only difference that I could see is that there is an extra lug cast in the body that does not impede their use. 

So in short, don't rule out R800/R1100 callipers which seem to be much more plentiful and cheaper as a consequence.

Thanks Mike. I have a list of: R80R, R100R, R1100RS, K1/100RS 16v and K1100LT & RS as matching the part number.
I am off the road now so need to get one soon. Not sure if the wife would be happy with me pinching her bike!

Panic over. I have just ordered a R1100RS one from ebay Germany for €32 inc delivery. Lets hope that the post from Germany to France is nice and quick.
