The biggest problem was just getting it to pump fluid to the calipers. Once it got there, it was no big deal... Finally ended up breaking the lines loose at the caliper, that seemed to do the trick
I like that idea and may have to see if I can get my wife to bring one home from the Vet where she works! It makes sensesyringe full of brake fluid with a hose on the end of the syringe. put the free end onto the bleeder and push the brake fluid up the line slowly. make sure you have the resevoir cover off. just another way to bleed brakes
one of the sponsors here Justin @ honda east toledo 1-877-437-1631, he should be able to get you what u need.I have searched and can not easily find someone to sell me the rebuild kits. Can someone point me to a sponsor etc that can sell me the rebuild kits for a 00 Busa front calipers please?
PS I am also looking for a cush drive replacement set. Mine is pretty loose and beat up after about 70K
Yes, that could cause lots of dust. It will put pressure on the pad and hold it against the rotor.if i am getting a ridiculous amount of brake dust from a couple hr ride would it be from a sticking caliper or bad master? also can i just send you my calipers to clean ludicrous speed?
Do you recall how long it took?Last year I pulled my front calipers to install new pads. When I did, one pad on one side was worn significantly more than the other in the same caliper. At this point I knew I had a sticky or stuck piston. I sprayed it really well with brake cleaner and pressed them all the way back in, but knew that this was just a temp fix.
So this winter I pulled the calipers off, and pulled them apart and gave em a good cleaning. Not that hard to do, and I took a few pics along the way.
This is not a difficult job, but it is extremely important that you take your time and inspect everything really closely. It is not even required that you replace the seals on the pistons, unless you have a leak, or damage one.
A friend that guided me through this has done dozens of sets of calipers and never had to replace a single seal.........
So anyway, onto the good stuff
