Snapped the rear brake caliper bracket, it's the bracket that the rear axle goes through and the caliper bolts on to.

Mechanic applied too much pressure while trying to slow the back wheel on the Dyno (it was an old style Dyno, that has no brake). The caliper nearly took his head off in the process, so I think he learned his lesson, the bracket was probably a bit weak too due to some reason.

My question is; does anyone know if this bracket is particular to the RS250?, or can I find it on another brand of bike. It's not too expensive new, just a bit of a long wait from Aprilia....

Thanks for the help.
