The matching tires thing is a myth perpetuated by people who sell tires.

(But of course you shouldn't mix radically different tires like an off road tire with a street tire though.)
Or mix a radia ...

I've done internal patches and ridden with no worries.
Like Duck, I'd do a plug to get me home, but not much longer.

I'm thinking like Chuck, what is the date stamping on them.

If you are only talking about the wavy spring washer, one for every bobbin and it fits on the side with the E-clip.
Now, did you remember the bobbins with the extra snap ring on them? Every 4th bobbi ...

Ah, yeah I have an air compressor so it made it much easier to do.

As long as you are replacing the pistons, no harm in using a pair of pliers to grab the old pistons to remove them.

I'd honestly say that it is a crap shoot when you are talking about splitting them.
I have done mine and not split them.

The risk being, if you split it and it then leaks afterwards, you don't hav ...

I would probably replace that.....
Have you checked with Motoworks, they may have a good used complete pump cheaper than getting 'the shaft' from BMW. ---pun intended-- lol

When you removed the wheel, were there any "spacers" or 'shims'? They would be 2mm thick. You should have at least 1. BMW # 36311451791

What size tires are you running?

If you are wanting to get at the wires, you will have to remove the carrier, with or without the radio in the carrier.
The carrier can be removed without taking the radio out of it 1st.

As far as the piston goes, it should not have a hole in it.
A full rebuild kit(if you can get one) should come with new pistons.

As far as brake lines go, you will most likely have to move the tan ...

The #7976 is for a 1" bar, and I have to shim it a bit.
I measured it at 25.3mm or .98"
