Take the calipers off the forks (no need to remove the brake hoses), remove the pads, clean the caliper externally, clean the inside and exposed pistons etc with a good brake cleaner & a small stiff brush. Don't scratch the pistons.
Remove the sliding pin boots and clean the pins back to clean shiney metal. Use copper grease on the pins and re-assemble. Push the piston/s back into the caliper and put back on the forks. Replace pads.
Make sure you put a smear of copper grease on the back of the pads, DON'T pull the brake lever while the pads are out and make sure that the brake cylinder doesn't overflow when you push the piston/s back in.
Love, light & peace
