Question about 1980 Yamaha XJ 650
Two ways... once the caliper is removed.
1st, but this is a little dangerous, put a piece of wood where the pads would go and use compressed air where the brake line banjo fitting goes. The piston will come out like a cannon ball.
2nd, messy but safer, i got a bolt that threads into the brake line banjo fitting hole. drilled a small hole through the length of it in the center, and then drill and tap to allow a grease fitting to go into the top of the bolt, thread this into the caliper, and pump grease into the caliper which will force the piston out slowely.
