Are you wanting to remove the caliper or just displace it?

I've never had the need to remove the caliper on a CBF1000A myself. I remove the rear wheel which allows displacement of the caliper and its bracket. It also gives me the opportunity to get up close and personal with the likes of the axel, wheel bearings and rubber dampers as well as the swinging arm, shock absorber, shock arm and dog bone, so much can be done once the wheel is out of the way.

Remove the rear wheel and the caliper and caliper bracket more or less displace themselves.
