Hi, Halfload for this scenario you will need your service manual that has all fastener torque specs and a wiring diagram on the back pages, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Kawasaki, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

hey there,, just gonna guess that u are tryin to bleed the caliper with it on the wheel already,,if u are m8 then itl take ages to pressure up,, im takin it that the caliper has never been split appart b4,, so any way,,take the caliper off the wheel ,but still leave it connected to the brake line,,take pads out to, and just place a pad in between the to pistons,,fill up the resevoir with fluid,, leave the cap off and just put the rubber cap in ,,start pumpin the foot brake,u should see the pistons moving,,keep pumpin till the pistons are a fair way in,, then if u have some put some copper grease on the pistons, then prize them back in,,then replace the pads then pump the foot brake again,just to check,its all moving,, put caliper bk on the wheel ,then bleed as normal,, gettin all air bubbles out,, ,hope that all makes sense m8,, any probs ,,shout and stage 2 story il tell yuh,, cheers now

Sounds like you need to service the caliper. Remove the piston from the caliper by pumping the brake pedal, be warned you will get brake fluid everywhere. Remove piston seals, dust and oil, you'll probably find that the grooves where they usually reside are full of 'crud' thoroughly clean the grooves, clean the seals then inspect seals for damage and replace if necessary, grease seals (high temp grease) and put back into caliper, wipe away excess grease. Inspect piston for corrosion, minor corrosion can be flatted back with 1200 grit sandpaper, if too badly corroded replace. lightly grease piston (high temp grease) and push into caliper. the piston should slide in easily by hand. Finally bleed caliper well, flush new fluid through entire system.

Testimonial: "Thanks for that input, I never contemplated about the crud and corrosion affecting the seals and preventing the brake pistons from moving freely. "
try using a line locker close to master cyclinder ,lever should go rock hard if it has no air in system,work line locker down lines to see if lever stays hard.
also check the lever travel to make sure that lever is pushing on master cyclinder plunger as a lot of after market levers dont have correct casting and have to travel in a long way before brakes work even when system is bled. also check to make sure calliper carriers are not bent and pads not sitting square on rotors.
hope this helps
