Front brake binding fixes
« on: May 17, 2020, 12:13:12 PM »
    My front brake had begun binding so, based on previous experience I decided to clean the pistons and fit new seals.
 The whiteish deposits in the photo  seemed o be the source of the problem.   I removed them with brake cleaner and
a tooth brush.
  Nb you will need a hard tootbrush.(the medium one in the photo proved ineffectual).  Also took the opportunity
to grease the sliders with  WD40 Silicone Lube.

  Suxzuki Part No. for the seals is    59300-13820.
