    Bored so cleaned calipers

    Bored today so took the pads out, cleaned them up plus pins and clips. Pushed the pistons out as far as i dare and cleaned with break cleaner and a tooth brush. Now no binding

    Still too cold for me to get out on it today even though it was dry

    All good oli. I put the original 9x7 numberplate on it and i just cant ride with it on it looks awful. So ive ordered a 7x5. Ive bridged the slick key as the buggers nicked that (fook knows why). The relays arrived from bmw last weds so are now in. Just waiting for 10c and dry

    I do that every time I change the pads. Well worthwhile.

    Brake Calipers

    I clean my brake calipers every time I change brake pads and at the beginning and end of every season.

    Well I clean my calipers before each trackday and when changing the brake pads. It is very important in my opinion if you want the max of your brakes.
