Re: 2006 R6 Super Hot Rear Caliper
Yeah, looks like the piston is just stuck and isnt sliding back into the caliper so its just rubbing against the rotors which is causing the heat, any guides out there on pulling apart a rear caliper? Not 100% sure I want to go at it blindly
There are YouTube videos on the subject, but trust me, you are way overthinking it. Just pull the caliper off the bike, take the hose off and blow some low pressure air in it. The pistons will pop out. Clean everything real good and push the pistons back in, put it pack on the bike, and bleed the system. Done.
