Front Brake caliper leaking down the split...

Hi very new here... brought a K1200RS'98 a few weeks ago and I'm having "brake fun".

Have changed the pistons after finding a leak (Seized pistions causing un-even wear) and no pressure.... have ordered the replacement o-rings from Motor Works but they donít know what torque I should wind the bolts up to which hold both parts of the callipers togetherÖ can anybody help?

Cheers.

Uh oh. You may want to consult with a qualified BMW mechanic, or someone here with appropriate experience....
