    xt350 front brake caliper rebuild?

    Howdy. I need to refurb the piston seals in my xt350's front brake caliper. Brakes were spongy so I bled the line, but still spongy. Took off the caliper assembly and pads and when I went to push the piston back in, there is some seepage of brake fluid.

    Would I just need #5 on this page, or #4 too? Or something else in addition to 4 or 5?

    My team lead at work used to be a motorcycle and car mechanic before he got into IT, so I can bounce the actual process off of him. Just wanted to get this lovely forum's opinions on needed parts before ordering.

    Provided that your piston is not pitted or scored & the caliper bore is in good shape , you should only need to order #5 being the seals only .
    If you remove the caliper from the bike you'll want to order crush washers for the brake line banjo fitting.
    I'd tear it down first & inspect parts , then order.

    Good luck : )

    Will do.

    He looked at everything and said only the caliper piston seal needs attention. I'll run w/ that.
