Also interested in the tool. Got a pair of new blue caps but can't get the old ones out :(



what colour are your old ones? too late now but if they were black, I could have bought them off you (i plan to swap black for gold) - I have a cunning plan to replace the brake lever bolts - if it works out, will post.

the brake lever bolts, clamp bolts and brake pad bolt arer hoffifically expensive about £8 for a single bolt!! :shock:

Old ones are red. The lever bolts can you get somewhere else too, like R2-bike (like 1,5€). Just normal M4x15 so no need to pay £8 for one.

Well the cap I tried to remove on the rear calliper is damn tight.

My frist attempt was to make the tool from a piece of plastic and the snapped off.
Second attempt was from a 5 mm thick piece of aluminium, filed to shpae to give 3 teeth but that rounded off!! :shock:

So am a bit stuck now as what to try next.

What are you guys trying to accomplish by removing the plug? It's just there to seal the end of the one-piece caliper, it serves no purpose to remove it unless the o-ring on the plug itself is damaged. The pistons and seals can be removed without removing the plug.

And 99.99% of the time you think you have a leaking piston seal, you have a leaking banjo o-ring and the brake fluid finds it's way onto the pads, thus fooling you to think you have leaking piston seals. I have in 15 years of working on Formula brakes, NEVER once encountered a leaking piston seal. It's always been the banjo o-rings or the o-ring between the caliper halves.

I had gold plugs but wanted to fit black plugs.

In the end I posted them off to be fitted as I could not undo them.
