Any advise on removing a seized caliper piston from the caliper. The caliper(rear) has been split got one piston out the other won't budge. Haynes manual said use compressed air, not a thing. Any suggestions appreciated.

To be fair I used them on my TL1000 tokicos.
There you go geeza!
Putting the caliper back together isn't an option the seals on the other half are knackered and fell out when the other piston came out.
Set it on fire. Give it a pull. Job done.
Tool I made from stainless in the middle, for cleaning ZXR dust and fluid seal grooves. David David Betts I'd say you need to stick the other piston back in with a fluid seal, it's the only way really. Some of the calipers you can wind an (M10x1.0) bolt in to push the piston out if it's a rear caliper AND it's the outer piston
I'm teaching no one to suck eggs here David Betts, but are you sure it wasn't the dust seal that disintegrated? I've never seen a seal THAT bad, and all my machines are old!
The seal was completely split when it came out.
Wow, those brakes must have been whipped!
9 squids for a set of seals, not the end of the world!
