    Default 314mm upgrade...

    Just curious to know what the going rate is these days for a 314mm brake upgrade to include calipers, discs, pads etc I think LMF was just over £400, just wanna make sure I've not paid too much for mine.

    No m8, just the calipers, discs and pads The carriers are the same. You might need 4 new bolts though. I broke one of mine getting it off so changed the lot They are less than £2 each.

    Hmm well if the carriers aren't needed that drops the price down to £160

    That is cheap

    When i did mine, all i did was undo the 2 torx bolts holding the caliper on and fitted the new caliper. You should also fit a new washer to the banjo bolt on the brake hose though.
