Hi, I have managed to lose one of the o-rings after splitting the calipers apart on a 96 Virago 1100 and i cant find the square/flat o-rings anywhere... it needs to a Aflas, Styrene Butadiene, Teflon, Butyl, or Ethlyene Propylene o-ring. rough measurement of ID-9mm OD 14mm Width 2.1mm

ill check again on tuesday when i go back to work but pretty sure
Please do. I have ordered a used set of calipers already but would love to fix these and resell if the price on those orings is right, the rebuild kit with the seals for the pistons is only like $13 per caliper so im hoping these are cheap.

Already tried both, lol. Dealership had no idea and by what i read standard nitrile orings is not the best for brake fluid.
Yes they aren't great, the fluid dries em up and they start to crack, go on some sort of o-ring site and put the dimensions, you'll be surprised how many universal seals + o-rings there are at a fraction of the price of the original ones!

Fork oil seals are best, don't type the bike just type the dimensions and you'll get em cheaper!
