Question about 1983 BMW R 65 LS
You can, but you should not. They may bind up again after a few applications of the brake. Removing and rebuilding the calipers is a relatively simple job, and the master cylinder is easy as well. How much is peace of mind worth to you?

The best practice I would advise to solve this is to apply safety first,which means you need the front brakes to work well and be good.Empty the system from brake oil, then remove caliper and front wheel.Once out remove brake pads and clean the piston-like instrument which applies pressure to the back of the pads, make sure they move freely eventually and use some lubricant spray to help.Once they move freely then replace brake oil and put everything back on and bleed the system.Everything should work normally but if can't bleed the system and there is no pressure then master cylinder is faulty.Please make sure you follow these steps carefully as these are an important feature of this bike.To stop.!
