Re: How do i push piston in rear caliper back ?
If it doesn't have two slots on the side, then it must have what looks
like a hole in th middle of it. There is also a special tool for this. What I
did was take a 12 or 13 mm bolt and welded a taiwan socket to it. Worked
excellent to screw the pistons in.
