Front caliper boot refitting?

Post by skyerae on Tue 04 Apr 2017, 5:23 pm

Overhauled front (Nissin) caliper and removed the bottom dust boot and cleaned it. Tried to refit it and punctured it. New one arrived today and battling to install it without puncturing it again. Anyone with a tip or two, all advice gratefully received. I assume it shouldn't be too difficult but am battling with this.

Got my very useful wife with her small fingers to pull it through without puncturing it, now got the seals and pistons installed so happy days - or so I hope.
