It's pretty easy job.. If you don't have compressed air then remove the caliper from the forks before you disconnet the line and pump the hydaulics to remove the piston with a thin piece of wood  where the disc was.
Some of you may rememberQuentin from the UK bitchin about poor corrosion resistance of the GPZ.
I concur - I've had to rebuild my calipers numerous times. Corrosion gets into the dust seal and forces it out, exposing the piston to rain/salt..

On the last ride a couple of weeks ago the left front brake was hanging 
and had to be pried loose. So the winter maintenance will include a 
complete overhaul of the brake callipers with new O-rings etc. Anyone 
done this yet? Any advice on how to do this?
