Question about 1998 Yamaha XJR 1200 SP
Have you changed the brake fluid complete by getting all the trapped air and gunks out?
If you have done that, then remove the brake pads, force piston to come out more, clean around them with Brakleen spray and around piston seals, wipe with clean cotton cloth or use compressed air to ensure that piston surface is very clean and nothing stops free piston movements. Press piston in as close as possible to caliper wall, spray again with Brakleen then air dry to blast all dirt away. Do these 2 to 3 times then assemble everything back and try to see if piston still stuck. If it gives tight friction grip it is now fine, just spin the wheel and you should have a little friction but the whell should be able to turn at least 2 free turns.
