Hi

Bought a set of Shimano M485 second hand and the main mounting bracket is missing, it is missing from the caliper on the right, see pic below.

Also the 2 bolts (think they are just M6 thread ?)

I think it is standard size -

    Cheers,

    The seller is stating that they bolt straight onto the forks ???

    Could this be true ??

    It should bolt straight on to post mount forks if using a 160mm brake rotor, if using a 180mm or 200mm rotor you will need an adapter (post to post mount).

    If forks have an I.S. mount, you need an adapter like the one in the photo, (post to I.S. mount) either 160mm, 180mm, or 200mm to suit the size of the rotor.

    Maybe may be not. It depends on your fork and the mount.
