    Default 314 vs 345

    Hi guys
    I recently picked up a set of vxr front & rear brakes for £200 , have just finished cleaning them up so thought i would post some pics, Also managed to get a set of the 314mm fronts off the Saab dealer in Milton Keynes (thanks James + Amar) so some pics of the front calipers to show the differences, just need to fit the vxr set now

    So that last pic, is that a 345 and 314 caliper next to each other? They look the same size.

    Carrier bracket is bigger, unless it's the camera angle.

    hi Duncan, yes they are the same length but the mounting holes (caliper to hub) are further out on the vxr's & a few other small differences

    Doesn't look to be a huge difference between the 2 front callipers or am I missing something?

    My ex Saab 314's are getting better & better - with a few hundred miles on them they are now very positive & responsive, I'm well pleased.

    A big thank you to James + Amar from me too

    Righto.

    Hmm, I wonder if there is any mileage then in using a 314mm caliper on a 345mm disc? and having increased stopping power?

    Any chance of you seeing if a 314mm caliper will fit to the 345mm carrier?
