Brake Caliper Stiffening Kit ~ How To Install and How it Works
How to install Tyrol Brake stiffening kit on MK4 R32. This Brake Stiffening kit prevents the caliper flex inherent in the stock rubber design. This flex leads to uneven pad wear and rotor deposits under hard usage. One note after talking with Tyrol, this is not meant to change pedal feel. If you experience any change in pedal feel, that is an added bonus. The kit is very simply meant to apply more even brake pressure with less flex in the caliper.
This DIY is pretty straight froward and requires only some basic hand tools. I have listed some tools below if you find you are missing anything. Be sure to follow the rest of the R32 restoration and rehab.

John’s Biography spans over 40 years of personal and professional business ventures. His love for cars, motorcycles and technology has turned his hobby into a career. “There’s nothing better than living the dream”. In 2008, with the recession lurking over his shoulder, John suffered a shocking blow when he lost his prize possession; EuroMasters Classic Cars. This was John’s personal tribute to his favorite cars; Porsche 911’s. His giant 37,000 sq ft, 2-acre dealership produced sales, service, parts, paint, upholstery, restorations & special events. Not only did John put his heart and soul into building his business, along with millions of hard-earned dollars, but in 2011 he lost everything and was forced to close down the company, In 2015, as a fighter, John came back strong again with his original passion for motorcycles and founded Triumph Classic Motorcycles; a premier restoration company.
