I was trying to roll the old beast out to the front yard yesterday and hose it down with degreaser , Well It sure was a bear to push so i inspected the rear brakes. I noticed they werent retracting all the way.

How hard compared to like say a kawasaki Mikuni calipers are they to rebuild? I did the Kz550 I have really easy. Just wondering if these are comparable to mikuni calipers, Fronts are itentical to my kz but the rear is not. If the pistons are all pitted, does anyone here have any?

Thats exactly as I do them, Sorta barbaric but works for those without air compressors.

Just messy without a bag and a CLEAN coffee can.



Steel wool (AAAA) wrapped around a wooden dowel was my HONE. Worked awsome, Just flood the piston hole with WD40 and pull the trigger.

Same for the front & rear Master cylinders.
