    After you have the calipers off the bike leave the pads in between the pistons and blow some compressed air (does not need to be a lot) into the hole the brake line goes in to. That should pop the pistons out enough to get at the grunge with a tooth brush dipped in brake fluid (remove the pads before you clean). You can be more thorough and remove the pistons and clean the holes they go into but be careful not to damage the seals.

        This is timely because I want to get a new braided line from PJ's Parts for my birthday.

        Thank you very much CD!!!

          My thanks are extended to CopperDog also. As he did I used the braided lines from PJ Parts (Fren Tubo) which are a very nice piece of kit. No problems fitting the front lines but after fitting the rear lines I had to take up a lot of slack on the foot lever - why I don't know at this stage. Any ideas would be welcome. Certainly no air in the line.

            I'm prepping for caliper overhaul but am having trouble finding the caliper pistion seals. Anyone know where they can be found?

                Thanks for the videos, they did help make my decision to get Fren Tubo lines. That being said I found that the installation wasn't as smooth for me as it seemed on the vid but I did finish the fronts and other than some tool marks on the T-fitting all went well.

                Your $.99 pump idea also worked once all the leaks were found.
