Saw this on a table at a swapmeet for cars:
from a vl1500 I think, but no pads were with it. 4 pistons
stock
side by side

Banjo bolt is different thread, but the location looks the same. The pads are bat wing shaped.  I have a banjo bolt from my 6 piston front calipers that works.  Put it on the rotor and there is plenty of room.  It fits the bracket, but I have not put it on to see if it will clear he swingarm when mounted.  This could be too much rear brake or and upgrade for people who have went DarkSide or tow a trailer.  I'll be looking for pads.  Anyone see any problems??   FIXITNOW

Look for numbers on it.

So far it looks great.

VL1500 is a single piston Caliper.  In fact looks just like the 1400 as far as I can tell.

You said the threads were differnt.  SAE or Metric?  SAE = Harley part...
Be nice to know what model it fits.  I looked up 4 piston caliper on Ebay but didn't see any positive matches.

Okay I found it on the 2004 model.  Looked at other year before.  Hope this works but I'd really prerfer Harley part as these can usually be found in chrome a lot easier.

Found the right pads:

just may tough here:

need to bed the pads next.  Hoping the master cylinder is big enough to push all 4 pistons on that caliper.     FIXITNOW

Keep the posts coming FIXITNOW.  Travelin and I were discussing this yesterday and are both very interested in how this works out.

Next question that comes to mind is "I wonder if the front caliper from an C90 will fit, and was it a multi-piston caliper as well?"

Time to look at some microfiche...

Do not know about how front calipers mount ( but they are different pads on each side ).  I run a 6 piston caliper off a 2001 kaw z600.  I made a bracket for upper bolt on caliper to forks.  
    I need to adjust my brake pedal,  my forward controls have some sloppiness and I can not push the pedal farr enough to get a strong feel, but it will haul me down from cruising speed ok.
    The only reason I'm looking into this is for a problem I saw of a vs1400 pulling a trailer 2-up with bags at a rest area on I-96 (Lansing area ).  There rear rotor was heat treated from stopping all that weight.  I swapped pads with him, because he was down to nothing on his pads and they were going to Grand Rapids from Erie PA.  I was close to home and don't use the rear brakes much from habit.  This got me to thinking about how to stop 2-up, saddlebags, trailer and maybe those who are going Dark Side (is this tire heavier than stock 170/80-15??).  It may have been this guys riding style (Rear Brake Only, English three speed nightmare's). As I learn more I'll post.   FIXITNOW

I love it when someone does a lot of work for me.  Searching for a caliper myself now.  I think the linkage slope is part of the issue or perhaps once the pads are seated it will sort out.

MAYBE an air bubble will come out with a quick bleed too.
