The rear disc brake piston needs to turn as it is retracted / compressed into the caliper.

Go to the parts store and tell them you need the brake cylinder retraction tool. Cost about 10 bucks and works for a variety of cars/vans.

It is a square with a couple of different teeth on each face, to align with the notches in the face of the brake piston.

Should work with a 3/8 drive ratchet. Clockwise facing the cylinder to retract. Have fun!

When do you know when dirt bike brake calipers are worn out and need to be replaced?

If your brakes feel spongy, fill the master cylinder with brake fluid (make sure it is the same as in the master cylinder -do not mix dot 3 with dot 4 fluid) then try bleeding the line. If the brakes do not come back in firm, it may be time to repair or replace the caliper. Another common problem is the brakes lock up. What is happening is the piston does not retract and stays in the "applied" position. This puts a constant pressure on the rotor.
