Advice on replacing calIpers and lines 1 Year, 11 Months ago  
I have a new set of front and rear calipers that I am installing. These are chromed versions of atock. The fronts are new and the rear is a rebuild. I also have new Gaffer lines I will install on the front brakes. Rear lines are staying on the bike for now. Thsee calipers do not have seals and pistons installed so I will be doing that as well. It is the first time I am replacing calipers on a bike but I have done it multiple times on cars. However I have not installed seals as pistons so that part is new to me. I will be taking the old pistons and putting those into the new calipers. I have watched a bunch of you tubers doing the rebuilds and it looks pretty staight forward. I th ought I would ask you guys for any advice before I do this.

When you install the seal don't use anything except brake fluid to lube the seals. That is the only thing to be concerned about,as you said installing the pistons and seals are pretty straight forward.
