I renewed my caliper and put in fresh fluid. I torqued the new caliper mounting bolts to spec and everything seems like it's working fine again.

And used anti-seize on the bolt threads?

No, I didn't. Perhaps I should...

I would hate to go through that again.

That may have been the issue in the first place

So, someone on the ex500 forum ran into the same problem recently.

Some say use antiseize, some say don't, some say use thread lock blue. I think I'm going to leave it as is for now. If I have a hard time getting them off next time, well, I'll cross that bridge then.

Blue thread lock acts as anti-seize. Pull one bolt at a time, blue loctite it, or anti-sieze it... or wait for me to say "I told you so"...
