Help with rear Brakes

I have a 2005 Yamaha Rhino 660, I was taking the rear Disc Brakes off and placing the pads with new ones. Can not get the Cylinder (piston) to go back into the Caliper. What am I doing wrong?

Is their a free Rhino 660 service manual available, if so what is the site.

Any help in this matter will be helpiful

The brake lines are still hook up to the rear brake calipers. I used a large Channel Pliers to draw the cylinder into the caliper and it will not move.

Put a short hose on the brake fluid bleed nipple, stick the loose end of the hose into a container and crack the valve open a bit while pressing the caliper piston in. That will ensure that the fluid within the cylinder has a place to go. Close off the valve as soon as you have the piston retracted, in order to minimize the need for bleeding of the brake line after you are done.

The brake system should allow the caliper piston to push the fluid back into the master cylinder reservoir when you let go of the brake pedal. You will want to make sure that the brakes engage and release as they should after you are done, as something might be hanging up in the master cylinder?
