Are we talking about the same thing? I'm talking about the dust cover that sits below the snap on o ring, the one with a hole for the pin rod.Are you talking about the rubber boot inside the cap? If so, my understanding is that it's primary purpose is to keep air (and especially the moisture in that air) away from the brake fluid, so I would say that yes, it is quite necessary.
i'm not the retard who provides zero valid explanation in a post am I? Your reply is useless and a waste of timeIt's only your brakes mate--how lucky do you feel--those things only make your bike stop properly. --Use that thing sitting on top of your neck----
alright i send em an email, hopefully they have it.contact Brembo directly, If it is a Brembo part. They still sell parts that are NLA from Ducati. I am a Brembo dealer but in The U.S.--I order parts that you cannot purchase any longer from Ducati. All you need to do is find a Dealer where you live
Wow 7 years? Thanks a lot dude, that's very reassuring. I too wash her carefullyFor what it's worth. That boot cracked and fell off my ST3 about 7 years ago. I gently wash the bike, and try not to ride in the rain. Never had an issue. I too, can't find a suitable replacement part.
No, you're not, you're the guy who messed with it and broke it.i'm not the retard who provides zero valid explanation in a post am I? Your reply is useless and a waste of time
Well maybe the guy should learn how to speak to strangers and he won't be called a retard how about that? He came here talking shit for. No. Reason, so that's what he gets.No, you're not, you're the guy who messed with it and broke it.
Asking for help you're going to get all sorts of answers, you should be grateful you're getting replies.
The dust boot keeps moisture, dirt and debris out, so the bore of the cylinder isn't compromised and the fluid remains stable for longer. The O ring keeps fluid in. They need to work together to make the M/cyl reliable.
Brembo don't sell spares deliberately to keep untrained people from fiddling with them and compromising safety.
In short, don't fuck with it, buy a new one and put it down to a lesson learned.
And using the term Retard is offensive on so many levels, don't be a fuckhead.
