Hi
I replaced the nsr brake caliper, discs and pads a few months ago. Recently I have noticed the nsr caliper is smoking after some trips but not all, once every 10 times or so I use the car. Have you any idea what would cause this intermitant problem?
Thanks

Do you
have the same problem?

Bad brake hose feeding the caliper. When was the last time you changed the brake fluid?
