Be super cool you could get that bracket extended 17 mm and use the mk8 R rotors. Hmmmmm
Saw this.

For some reason it's harder to get all the air out of the system with these calipers. Bleed the system LF, RF, LR, RR, then do multiple ABS stops. Give it a day or two, then do a 30 psi bleed LF, RF, LR, RR. If you bleed correctly, they are rock solid. If you aren't going to use Castrol Red Rubber grease on the pistons/seals, don't even bother using these calipers. No one wants to hear you complain about a soft pedal when you were given the answer in the first paragraph or the first post in the thread.
Hi I'm new here.
I have recently bought the callipers new.
I have got them painted aswell but not installed yet. Waiting on custom wheels.

One question I have is.
How to I get the piston out to grease?

The only way I can think of is to hook them up and press on the brake pedal but there is a major risk of the piston flying out 😆.

Any help would be great!

Blow a little compressed are into the hole for the bleeder.

For those having issues with RB silicone dust boots not seating properly. I just got the BCB silicone boots and they fit nice and snug!
