so I've had put on new Honda calipers purchased from JSP and new cables and my calipers are still sticking
What's the issue here ?
I'm baffled.

Bled new fluid through, we are missing the c clips that hold the cable service into the calipers but I doubt that's the issue plus if anyone has any of those or knows where to get them from let me know.

But they're new so I doubt that, plus I could move them with my hands when the calipers were off the car.

Try re setting the handbrake,
Slacken the handbrake cable right off inside the car, wind the Pistons in both calipers back,

Re fit the calipers then pump the pedal to push the Pistons back out,

Re adjust the hand brake cable

Still doesn't go back quick enough and one sides still sticking after slacking off the cable, winding back the piston and pumping the peddle as above.
Better than before but still a little sticky after engaging the brake.

Cables as slack as possible without any freeplay
