i got my seal and piston kits for my nissin 4 pots yesterday, and got them out the box to check them against my old ones to make sure they were correct.with the seals of the larger piston, is another little seal that i dont know where its for!
i am assuming it is so the caliper can be split in half to make service easier, but i was under the assumption that the calipers SHOULDNT be split!
can someone please shed some light on this for me?

AFAIK, it's just the Alcon sixes that shouldn't be split. (And, of course, the twin-pots that are cast as one piece and can't be split.) My second pair of Tokico 6-pots has been on my RS for about 17k miles now, and I split them before installing. I also split the first set of Tokicos that I put on the 'dent, but I don't remember how many miles I had those on for.

Cheers,
