    Rothewald Disc Brake Piston Spreader

    The Rothewald Disc Brake Piston Spreader is an essential tool for fitting new brake pads. It couldn't be simpler to use. This device is also suitable for a range of car, scooter and quad bike brakes.

    It enables you to compress the brake piston without tilting, thus preventing damage to the calipers, which can easily happen when changing the brake pads. So you don't run the risk of a sticking, rubbing brake as a result of a tilted brake piston.

    The Rothewald Disc Brake Piston Spreader has a ball bearing-mounted spindle plus large and small spreader plates.

    Einwandfreie Qualität

    Ich war zuerst etwas unsicher, habe mir dann den Rücksteller nach längerem überlegen gekauft.
    Ist sehr stabil, beim benützen hat nichts gehackt, hat einwandfrei funktioniert.

    Hätte ihn doch früher kaufen sollen

    Could be better

    It works OK on my Yamaha FJ 1100, but it could be better. For example, I still need to remove the calipers to push in the pistons because the bars ain't long enough. And they tend to flex a bit so you must be careful when pushing in the piston since it tends to tilt it. I surpassed that problem by changing sides of pushing and pressing the brake once in a while to straighten the piston. Nevertheless, it makes the job a lot easier than with anything else.
