    its been 3 years and my hopes are giving trouble. the front caliper gets really sticky(nearly to the point of getting jamed) when it heats up a bit but after a bit of pumping its ok. the master cylinders are creaking and sometimes get stucked when braking hard.the oil in the rear brake gets merky way too fast too, i suspect water getting into the system some way or another.
    looking at the diagrams from the hope web site everthing looks pretty straight forward exepect the the removing the master cylinder piston. hows that done? so to all the hope gurus, anything that i should know about? and should i just get a seal kit and replace all the seals? coz its only 12 bucks for it.
    thanks in advance for the help.

    All it is, is a C-clip that hold the piston in. They are so easy to work on.
