    There is if you do it the correct way and slacken off the bleed nipple before pushing/winding the pistons back into the brake caliper. By forcing brake fluid back into the master cylinder there is a risk of flipping the rubber seals. Also it's not good practice to force dirty brake fluid back through the ABS pump either.
