The motorcycle stood for 15 years after a rebuild, but the owner could not get the brake correctly bled. A small amount of fluid could be forced through the bleed screw. Loosening of the lower steel pipe banjo allowed the fluid to exit as normal. Later I removed the caliper and stripped it to find the piston seals in bad shape. Is there anything else which could cause the pistons not to return in the caliper?
