Hi guys it's been awhile....but I'm reinstalling my front wheel and fighting with getting the brake calipers back on those huge rotors on my 1098. Is there any tips and tricks for this? Or do I just struggle and wiggle until I get them back on? Thanks so much for your help!

Mate. Before placing the caliper on, push the pads and pistons back a little first to create space but not so much that you push all the fluid back to the master cylinder. Then just wriggle it on over the rotor making sure you don’t clout the wheel otherwise you risk chipping the paint off. Simples.
