    Default brakes?

    i have been looking through numerous threads regarding front+rear brakes i presume that the front caliper pistons can be pushed in but the rears need the rewind tool, is it wise to undo the bleed nipple on both when returning the pistons as not to force fluid back to the resevoir, and then bleed normaly??

    You need a 21mm windback tool mate, no need to undo the bleed nipple, but do take the fluid cap off before you push back, and wind them gently or you risk knackering the fine thread.
