Brake pad change - please help!

Hi there,
I'm changin the brake pads on my K1200S ('05 with ABS) and the brake pistons are too close to the disc to allow the nice new brake pads to fit in. Can anyone please tell me how I can get the brake pistons pushed back and reset to their outer position so that I can fit the new pads in please?
Many thanks,
