Anyone know where to get the 'pin tool' to remove the diaphragm caps, and also the hex tool to remove the caliper bores?

I haven't seen the tools anywhere. But if you wan't to remove the pistons you can force them out with pressurized air.

I know the caliper bore tool isn't available commercially, Formula say you have to send it back to them. No doubt someone somewhere has made one.

I saw R2-bike selling them before, I should have bought one! Now they're gone and I want to change mine to gold from Batman version. I had all bolts exchanged with gold for free from the supplier except for the caliper bore cap. At least it's black, not red.
