    Hi all. It seems my triumphs rear caliper is seized and the brake pad retaining bolts are seized solid and the Allen bolts are very rounded off so I think the easiest thing is to replace the caliper. Anyone know what triumph calipers are interchangeable? It's a 1997 triumph trophy 900. Cheers.

    The one in the link is a front Nissin for a carbed 900/1200 Trophy , but worth giving Trevor a call at Sprint Manufacturing , he's only down at Upton Lovell , the other side of Warminster . https://www.triumphparts.gbr.cc/product.php/2376612/

    Try a drill and stud extractors? If you are thinking of replacing it there's no harm attacking it with the brutal option. If successful you'll only need to replace the bolts.

    All sorted with little drama , an over sized Torx bit hammered into the Allen bolt head and out it came. (FULL DISCLOSURE: it wasn't my idea and it wasn't me that managed to do it ).

    Good to hear you got it sorted
