I'm sure everyone will agree this is not a "fix" but rather is a workaround, it temporarily frees the piston obstructions, but the locking can and will return any time. Everything you loosened up is still in the fluid and is awaiting to mess up again. I used the clamping trick to be able to move the bike but it quickly returns, especially if stored over winter. Any marks you leave with tools on the outer piston surface may actually become inside the bore when you eventually install new pads so be careful to not mark the metal at all.

But, hey, if you're happy to put off the repair a while this will work. If the pads still have some depth.

I did state that the master would prolly need to be rebuilt. :good:
The edge of the piston where I was grabbing sticks out past the sealing surface, and I was very carefully not to damage anything. I also flushed the whole mess...it DID have some nasty old doo-doo in there! It definitely worked well for me today both to and from work(52 miles). Much better that having front brakes only, fer sher! The rear pads are new, also...or they were a few months ago.
Not saying this is the total fix...just that it got mine working again. At least I know now which component was causing the problem. I'll be rebuilding both the caliper and the master this winter, anyway....I hope! :Egyptian:

Sometimes we all have to get a little creative when we do stuff, we all know that, ok, here it goes, I wasn't gonna tell anyone this trick I dreamed up until I tested it. On the master cylinder there is a Circlip that keeps the piston ect. in place. Well, I cleaned it up well used a small file to make a better groove and the brake pedel would sometimes spring up because that Circlip wouldn't hold...Did this to me a few times, so I came up with a way to keep that sucker from popping out anymore,[groove was too worn] here's where you guys will think I'm crazy, I put the clip on and drilled three small holes at a angle just above the circlip and placed in three small stainless steel screws to hold the circlip in place and contained, It's worked now for over a year with zero issues, I never worry about it not holding anymore..Hopefully you won't ever need to go this far, but it is better than not riding your bike..These master cylinders are getting a lot harder to find too..I know Hillybilly technology...Cost to you three screws..

Sounds like another opinion to me and a great one at that..cotterpins cool...good one... :Egyptian: It's amazing how we dream this stuff up is it..As long as that Circlip is trapped is all I care about..Never to pop loose again..

In the Army we safety wired everything on helicopters. Same basic principle with cotter pins. Just block the ring from coming out.
