Hi,

I'm fitting new pads and discs to the front of my 2010 RS 250 this weekend.

Just wondering what size is the piston rewind tool that I need to use? Better yet, if anyone can link me to one on eBay for a reasonable price (they usually go for £10 or so) then that would be great.

Any other tips or 'specialist' tools you think could come in handy?

Many thanks!

Only the rears need a rewind tool. The front pistons just push back in. I use a large pair of adjustable pliers with some insulation tape wrapped over the jaw to prevent marking of the calipers.

You can get spreader pliars too off ebay, will put all 4 pistons back at once.

Easiest way requires just a screwdriver... use the old pads still fitted and push them back to the outsides with a screwdriver, zero chance of caliper damage then and all 4 pistons will go back evenly :)
