Brake caliper rebuild
Hi, so the season has started here in Denmark, so I have been working on the bike to get it ready, but I'm having some trouble with my front brakes.
The pin that holds the brake pads was seized in one of the calipers, and of course I broke it, so I had the Suzuki dealer drill it out, and in the process he poped the pistons out, and they had a fair amount of rust on the top, so I replaced all the pistons.
So I have put new seals and pistons in the calipers, and it all looks good, but I can't get all the air out of the braking system, I have tried 3 times now, but it's still not right, so could there be a leak by one of the pistons that allow air to enter but still keep the fluid inside ?
