Howdy, I was wondering if anyone knew what the maximum clearance for the front caliper pistons are. The reason for my question is that my pistons have slight pitting in them and was curious if I'd be able to use a lathe to remove it.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Problem is that the seals depend on piston diameter. Can't remember if they are hard chromed. If so, that also kills the lathe idea. What I did was buy a late model caliper on eBay and cannibalized it for the pistons.
