It would be a good idea to suck most the brake fluid from the front reservoir before you push the caliper pistons back. Refill the reservoir when done installing the calipers and again after the brake lever has been pumped up.
You don't realize what a pain/mess chain maintenance is until you have had a shaft-drive for a while. All told the Triumph is fun and a lot more on the sport side than my trusty, but overweight '04KRS.
