Overdue caliper cleaning, brakes felt off. Turns out I had pistons moving slower that the others.
Before & after pics.





Feels absolute once again!

What did you use to clean the pistons? Soap and water wt a toothbrush?
Yes, that’s exactly what I used. I used spray bottles for more through rinsing.
Spray, scrub, rinse & repeat.
3 times was enough to get it clean.
Plenty rags also so it doesn’t splatter everywhere.
I was careful when extending the pistons so as not to pop them, out which is easy to do from what I read.
Zero hesitation & less drag is the end result.

About to put the rear wheel back on my 2017 S1 with a new S21 to match the old S21 on the front.

So there must be a minimum requirement for the amount of times the spacers fall off and a minimum amount of time required wrestling with the wheel before everything magically falls into place with ease, and the bike is like, "I don't know what the fuss was all about". :cautious:

I have to say, it’s not an easy thing putting that rr wheel on..! Tite tolerances.

I have the handy dandy wheel assist attachment for my rear Pitbull stand, that helps tremendously as well as captive spacers that have machined channels to catch on the dust seal lips.

Also consider getting one of the Ten Kate rear caliper hold on bracket thingamajigs - that removes a little bit more of the frustration (y) .

So much yes. That adjustable tire wedge is a godsend! Many a tool have been saved from being thrown in frustration after getting it :ROFLMAO:

I see they're $90. It's pretty sweet but I'm not sure it's $90 sweet. I'll put it on the Christmas presents for Dad list.
