BTW, no pictures here as I was in a hurry, but my front brake was a little soft so, since I had the caliper and master cylinder kits on hand, I rebuilt them a cople of days ago. Lots better pressure at the lever.

Pretty easy to do, just needed snap ring pliers to get the piston out of the MC, then for the calipers, compressed air to push out the pistons, (keep your fingers clear), a small pick to snag the piston seals. then just clean the parts well. The mastercylinde and calipers bores were in good shape so the master cylinder bore was lightly sanded and cleaned again, then seals and bores lubed with brake fluid upon assembly.
