04 R1150R Rebuilt Calipers

I rebuilt a pair of front brake calipers, pistons & seals etc.. used brake fluid for re assemble..I didn't get to the installation this last season.. I'm wondering if they'll be good to go when the Michigan weather breaks? They're stored in a heated & damp free area.
Thanks..

Re: Directional Signal cancellation.

My signals (04 R1150R) were always manual turn off required..yours were on a timer? I know using a "signal minder" auto cancel is an option IF the running light option is not used.. cant have both..

Panniers/luggage Lid Emblem Removal

The red reflector & BMW badge on the luggage lids are just on by adhesive correct?
Maybe a little heat from a hair dryer starts the process?
Has any one removed them.
Thank you.
