Still working on my bike, thanks for all the help so far.

My rear brake piston is seized. Any good ideas for getting it on unseized?

I've seen guys use a pressure going to push it out, Is that a good solution or is there something better?

Should I replace the piston and seals or could I get away with using the old ones?

I use a compressor to push the pistons out, but it can be dangerous. Put some heavy rags around it all first.
Can't find a fiche for it but I'm sure the caliper is used on other models.
For the cost of new seals I would replace them, and you'll probably need a new piston too if it's corroded.
Or just get a much better caliper and put that on.

Whats a Banjo Bolt?

A hollow bolt that allows fluid to flow through it - like on the hydraulic brake system. Generally the bolt goes through a banjo-shaped hose fitting.
