Periodic Maintenance Procedures

Brake Caliper Fluid Seal and Dust Seal Replacement

Loosen the brake pad pin [A] and banjo bolt [B], and
tighten them loosely.
Remove:
Front Caliper Mounting Bolts [C]
Banjo Bolt
Brake Hose [E]
Front Caliper [D] (see Front Caliper Removal in the
Brakes chapter)
Brake Pads (see Brake Pad Removal in the Brakes
chapter)
Separate the caliper holder [A] from the caliper [B] and
remove the anti-rattle spring.
Using compressed air, remove the pistons. One way to
remove the pistons is as follows.
Cover the caliper opening with a clean, heavy cloth [A].
Remove the pistons by lightly applying compressed air [B]
to the hose joint opening.
To avoid serious injury, never place your fingers or
palm in front of the piston. If you apply compressed
air into the caliper, the piston may crush your hand
or fingers.
Pull out the piston [A] by hand.
Remove the dust seals [B] and fluid seals [C].
If compressed air is not available, do as follows for both
calipers coincidentally, with the brake hose connected
to the caliper.
Prepare a container for brake fluid, and perform the
work above it.
Remove the spring and pads (see Brake Pad Removal
in the Brakes chapter).
Pump the brake lever until the pistons come out of the
cylinders, and then disassemble the caliper.
