    is there any easier way?

    One of my pistons on my Juicy 3's sticks on occasion and the lever doesn't return as fast as it should. Can a little triflow near the piston loosen this or am I in for another rebuild?

    Extend the pistons, using a couple of rotors or a big fat washer to stop them coming too far out; spray/drip silicone lube onto the pistons and wipe with a cotton bud; spray/drip again; push pistons back into caliper. Repeat that process two or three times, then wipe caliper interior dry and refit pads. Should be good to go...
