Holy cow!! I will never attempt to bleed my brakes again without this thing! This made a WORLD of difference when changing my pads, fluid and MCyl. Of course getting the old ones out, new ones in was much easier. But also being able to force the caliper pistons all the way open while bleeding the brakes took me almost all the way to the feel I wanted at the lever. Still, no matter how many times I do it, no matter how many tips I read on the forums... my motorcycle mechanic can ALWAYS get it better! And I use the bleeder bag, the Mighty Vac, this thing, yadda yadda yadda. But Eric is better than all that stuff!!

I bought this to use while changing brake pads on my Road King. It is a high quality tool that worked well for my motorcycle application. I more than paid for the tool by changing the pads myself. There were cheaper plastic tools available but I was happy paying more for a better quality tool that will last.

What a great tool.
The built quality is stellar.
Yes, this tool was a bit pricey (I bought it when it was $100).
Don't regret the investment as it's high quality.
The blades have two different thicknesses, so you can find the best way to spread your calipers.
It's strong and the materials are top notch.

Would buy again!

PERFECT!!! This is perfect for motorcycles. When changing tires and it's time to re-attach your calipers...this gem fits between your brake pads and spreads them very with a few turns. There's very little resistance. It makes a hard job easy!

Used this Caliper spreader on my shiver 750 Aprilia Motorcycle on front And back Caliper pistons was ez enough to get between the piston to push back, had to take off rear wheel to make it more easy. Feelsl strong and sturdy only used it once on front and back pistons so I keep update on how long it last. Its now cheaper, wish it was cheaper when I bought it for $70.00 buck is high. I see it quality last. Tools spreader makes it much easier to push back pistons instead of using pliers and so you do not get tool marks on your calipers.

I'm restoring the brakes on an old Porsche, and the factory brake caliper tool is quite expensive... several hundred dollars. This tool does the same job for a fraction of the price. Construction is the same as the more expensive German tool and this is actually a bit nicer with the knurled shaft, which gives a little extra grip with greasy hands or gloves.
