    Default Pad wear with disc size??

    Hi guys just bough a set of what I belive are 302mm front calipers from a 2.2 in the breakers this was confirmed by the reg in my work. Strange thing is though the pads seem to not be wearing at the top and eventually are going to touch when the pads reach about half there wear. Is it possible to fit 314mm discs?? As its about 4/5mm of the pad not wearing???

    Thanks in advance to any reply and I will try get pictures later.

    These came of a 2.2 ans EPC lists 302mm.

    Dog_Book I could d see any other markings but I'm attacking the bleed nipples today so will have another going over. Just think the way the pads are wearing is strange.

    It looks like a two-part callipper, 1 part aluminum and 1 part cast iron. Then there are 314 or 345 callippers most likely 314.

    These ARE 314/345mm calipers...
    This is a pic of my 314's: 20200226_171214.jpg

    Only difference between the two is the length of the mounting bracket, but I think yours must be 314's as well...

    So looks like some ones put 314 calipers on with 302 discs as I suspected as my caliper is the exact same as that. This would explain the pads to wearing properly

    That’s why I asked to see the rest of the caliper as the 302 is a 1 piece caliper
