I don't think so, I think this is later than the twist-in pistons. On my '88 900T, which I *think* has the same brakes as your 89, there's a 13mm plug on the back of the caliper - looks like a bolt with a 13mm head. Remove with ratchet/socket Inside, there is an adjusting screw, which is (I think) a 5mm allen-head setscrew looking thing, use *that* to pull the piston back into the caliper. If you don't have the bolt-looking plug on the back of your calipers, then disregard the above. Dave Hinz --
