OK, an update Guys.

Wheel removed and new brake seals fitted. Took the wheel to a local mechanic who fitted the seals. It was easy for him to blow out the pistons using his air line. On further inspection one of the seals had buckled slightly and there was slight corrosion which was easily removed by polishing out with T-Cut or similar mild abrasive.

All is now well, apart from ill seating valves due to internal rim corrosion. But that is another topic :lol:

Darn, so even compressor air is humid over there...
Should have exclusively used OEM Honda air Tony, it is the best... 8-)
