Magura brakes

Hi all
I've got an old Scott Tampico with Magura rim brakes, the pistons in the lever body are really stiff, may need new seals, been stood for some time, where can I get seal kits from.

Hi Roy, sometimes the plastic pistons on the levers can swell up a bit, and even with the spring in there they don't want to return. You could lightly sand the pistons to help things.
Better to strip a lever down first though to see exactly what you're dealing with.

Thanks buddy, have stripped no probs, piston seems tight so will sand a little, I was about to sell it and didn't realise the brakes had stuck.
Cheers Roy
