Hello guys and gals, Thanks for your time. I have searched the forums but can't find an answer for what I should do here... I bought my 05 VTEC about a year ago, and discovered pretty bad gas mileage (30 mpg). I discovered that (I think) the front brakes were dragging. On the center stand with the front wheel in the air would get about a turn or so with a good kick on the front wheel. I could also hear the brakes rubbing on the discs (lightly?), but maybe that's normal. I suspected that it's one or both of the calipers full of junk, or maybe even a seized piston, and that the calipers are in need of a rebuild. By the way I'm pretty sure the discs aren't warped, and the brakes (even after long rides) would never get very hot. Anyway, I was continuing with this caliper rebuild idea in the back of my head. So, I finally bought all the goods and took the right caliper off (but didn't disconnect). With only the right caliper off, I got maybe another 1/4 of a turn than with both on (so we're talking 1 and 1/4 turns or so). I did the same with the right and same results. So I took both calipers off (plenty of wheel spin now!) and took the pads out and the pistons (at least the lower ones, which I can get a good grip and a thumb on) would move, but I had to give a pretty darn good squeeze (like my thumbs hurt!). The other pistons would move into the calipers with a (careful) but pretty damn firm push using the rubber coated end of a big pair of channel locks as a lever. (I also wrapped a rag around these, to be careful). Bottom line - all six pistons moved, but with a decent (maybe too decent!) amount of effort. At this point I wondered if the calipers needed to be rebuilt or not... the old pads were pretty shot, so I put new pads in (they were pretty tight, but I got the calipers back on, just). I gave the wheel a spin and it was very tight. 1/4 or 1/3 turn max (total) with same effort as before. I took it for a short spin around the block, and all is good, but when I got back to base I gave the wheel a spin again, and now I am getting 1/3 to 1/2 turn with the same effort as before, and (not surprisingly) the discs were pretty damn hot even after a short (3 min ride - with a few pretty good stops involved). So the big questions are: 1. Should I rebuild these calipers? 2. How easy should the pistons move in the calipers? 3. Is the amount of wheel spin I'm getting normal or bad? Any input is very welcome!!! Thanks!
