Replacement rear caliper?

Well while tightening the rear caliper bolts as I have done on countless bikes, I heard that fateful 'click' of the casing cracking.
Mortified is not the best word to use, I've been a mechanical engineer for over 30 years, and I hate it when I break something!
So the question is........
Fjr calipers are like hens teeth, and stupid money. So has anyone replaced the rear caliper with one from another bike? Preferably a blue spot from an R1 or Fazer thou maybe?

Can't help you much there.... what year and which half of the caliper broke (Gen1 was different, all following years same), sometimes you can just buy the piece you need. I had to do this on a Honda recently, fortunately there were a few to choose from on ebay.

She's a 2004 gen 1 facelift (flush indicators). It was the front mounting hole in the caliper that broke as I gave it that little 'tweek'.

Note to self :- Buy a fecking torque wrench!!!!!

If you mean this bracket, and it's the bolt to the brake arm, remember that is a locking nut on there and it doesn't have to be torqued "that hard". Gudensnug is good enough.

Nope, it's the actual caliper bolt hole that's cracked.
