brake question

Recommended Posts

both my wheels are off of the bike (2002 yz250f) right now and i accidentally pulled the front brake lever all the way down while there was nothing in between the pads. Im not sure what to do to make the gap in between the pads again so I can put the rotor back in. any suggestions?

thanks

I have seen this don many times i usually take a gasket scraper tool or a putty knife slide it in between the pistons then brake the bleeder screw. you should be able to push the pistons backinto their bores easily. if they wont move than they have popped out of the bores or seals. the only thing to do then is find a shop that can rebuild them or replace them. hope that helps

Screw driver if you can fit one in. If not, start tearing down the brake system.
