Billet Alloy Front Brake Arm and Backing plate
« on: November 23, 2018, 05:18:07 PM »
Hi guys,

Just wondering whether anyone has had any experience with the Billet Alloy backing plates and arm? I bought a (twin bolt) kit from Maico Only for my 81, to discove thatr the first arm he sent was for Pre 81 and the replacement arm he sent was for a 74. Moral of the story is that he can't supply me with an 81 twin bolt kit. Maico only have informed me they can only swap it out with a single bolt kit. Any thoughts? As you are well aware these kits are not cheap and currently this kit is useless to me.

If it were me and I'd twice been sent the wrong thing from a specialist supplier and was only then told the correct part wasn't available, I'd assume there was a non-zero chance they'd get it wrong again. There's other suppliers of billet back plates so I'd ask for a refund.

     Email Jeroen at VMX services with what model Maico you have . He should be able to supply the correct Brake stay.

     I have one of these Front Backing Plates.    Good Quality as with every thing he sales.
     
     Do not buy from So Cal Maico or VMX Unlimited they do not stock anythink.  You will be waiting for ever for your parts.

     As for Maico Only UK.  Expensive and  Bad Service .  .

Another vote for Jeroen. He's helpful, races maicos and sells good stuff.

Thanks gents!

Yes very disapointed with Maico Onlys performace. Unfortunately I purchased the parts some time ago and had them sitting on the shelf until I was ready to fit. In the interim Maico only supposably changed ownership and won't accept a full refund. My best offer was to replace the current setup for the alloy single pin. I wanted to upgraded to two pin for the extra piece of mind. Lesson learnt, install parts as soon as they arrive!  >:(
