Brake pads stuck together with no tire on

Recommended Posts

I took rear tire off '17 KX 100 to get repaired.  As I was working on bike with tire off,  I pushed down on the rear brake, and now the pads are stuck together.

What do I need to do?

Push the caliper inward, this method doesn't damage the pads, it sends the calipers piston home

Pry them open with a screwdriver

Much easier than I thought. Not sure why I try to make things so hard.

that wont do anything without a rotor in-between the pads.
