Thread: RIBE Head Caliper Bolts

    RIBE Head Caliper Bolts

    Is anyone re-manufacturing these caliper bolts.

    I am looking for the full range which includes M7, M8 and M9 (for the SC) in all of the relevant lengths.

    The tooling to forge the head is not too expensive but for small quantities the individual bolt cost is relatively high.

    No one that I know of, at least for the 7mm. I searched the world for about a year. Even getting a socket heat (Allen) in the correct length and strength required a special production run just for me. I still just get cores to strip. Eric at PMB might be interested in a purchase of the bolts.

    Hello Chris,
    hope I can help you a little bit. you can find some M7 and M9 screws and nut in the Ferrari section, especially for the 308 Models and their brakes. They don’t have Ribe heads, but they have Torx and Inbus….

    I hope, it can help you....

    A friend who does Calipers has a source for them I'll ask him this evening.
    AFAIK ATE sells them, but only in large quantities of 500pc.
    But apart from that I'd ask https://www.ribe.de
    Then there's http://www.jl-parts.de/ and also the guy that restores Brakes (called RS or RSL something) I've got his card at home and can looku his name. But they will probalby sell them to you but not make their source public.

    Joachim from BTS http://www.bts-autoteile.de/ has inbus (not ribe) repops 9x1.25x80
    and Walloth & Nesch https://www.wallothnesch.com/catalog...Cr+bremssattel has some repops in M7 and M9 with inbus too.

    Cheers
    Uli
