Yes it can be easy to do with the right tools and knowledge. Compressed air is your friend on this to get the piston's out. Also lube the rings with brake fluid when putting back together. Plus the seals only go one way. There is a taper on them. Very hard to see.

Pistons are already out thank goodness, I had the calipers powdercoated a couple of weeks ago. I got the new seals on order from bikebandit so they should be here in he coming days.

NONONONONONONO DO NOT ever powder coat the calipers!!!! You will boil over the brake fluid!!!!! The powder coat will retain the heat!!! This mod should be for show bikes only!! Very dangerous.
