I had one stuck piston on the brake for my CM450 (it had dual pistons). I clamped the good piston in place (C-clamp), then plugged the brake line hole with a bolt. Next, I attached my grease gun to the bleeder nipple. One or two pumps to fill the caliper with grease, and then the next pump slid the stuck piston right out.
It took hours and hours to clean out all of the grease, but it sure popped the piston out easily. No reason why it shouldn't work on yours.
