How to use the Caliper Resetting Tool
Note: This procedure was performed on a 2003 Yamaha YZF-R6. All specifications mentioned in this procedure apply to this model bike only. Please refer to your service manual for specifications regarding your particular model bike. It is important that you read all steps at least once before starting work on your bike.

Supplies and Special Tools Required for this procedure:


1. Caliper Resetting Tool
2. Brake Fluid (DOT 4)
3. Brake Cleaner
4. Several Rags


Step 1 Remove the two retaining clips from the retaining pin.

Step 2 Pull the reaining clip out which also releases the caliper spring.



Step 3 The brake pads will slide out.

NOTE: Do not squeeze the brake lever when the pads are out of the caliper as it will be very difficult to push the pistons back. Brake fluid leakage may also result.

Step 4 Clean the brake caliper and pistons using a commercially available brake cleaner. Spray liberally and allow 2 to 5 minutes to dry.

WARNING: Use the brake cleaner in a well-ventilated area as fumes are toxic and harmful.



Step 5 Set the Caliper Resetting Tool at its starting point by turning the handle counter clockwise. Carefully insert the tool into the caliper, making sure that no undue pressure is exerted on the brake disk. Otherwise the disk may be warped. The tool should slide right into the caliper with some careful maneuvering.

Step 6 Slowly turn the handle clockwise. The tool plates will start to expand and will start to push the pistons back into the caliper body.
