    changing rear calipers

    I am hoping to do my 256mm upgrade on the rear brakes this week. Was just wondering if someone could enlighten me on the best way of removing the old calipers and fitting the new ones, in regards to the brake lines? can i clamp them or would i have to drain the fluid etc?

    Cheers

    Liam

    You dont have to fully drain the brake fluid. I didn't when I did mine.

    I just did a quick swap over of the brake line/banjo to the upgraded caliper and i didn't lose much fluid. Obviously you wil still have to bled the brakes properly afterwards....
