Just spoke to our dealer here in Burbank. They confirmed the permanent fix is not yet available, but expect it around end December, early next year. Did not sound all that certain though?
Also confirmed that, if I would come in to have the brakes checked:
- they will take apart the calipers. If there is damage that is small, they will fit a 'repair kit' (probably a new piston and seals)
- if there is major damage, they will need to order new calipers (of the current type, which means temporary fix). Why they don't have a couple of sets of these calipers on the shelf I don't know, they know people will be coming in for the check. If they don't have them in stock, you will need to leave your bike with the dealer (and walk home?) until they receive the temporary replacement caliper(s). You will need to come back later for the permanent fix.
So I will hold onto my bike and monitor the brakes until the new-new calipers/parts have arrived. I already repaired my rear caliper and can easily do it again, was pretty easy to do.
