While the seals are easy to get, the calipers are not covered in depth in the VStar maintenance manual. You might need to get a CMM (Component Maintenance Manual) for the caliper. You'll need the brand and model number. You might be able to get that off the part itself, or you might need to contact your dealer. Having said that The only calipers I have rebuilt were on a Ford Explorer. I have rebuilt many types of hydraulic brakes over the years. The earliest were '48 Willys Drum and the latest were 2002 Ford Explorer. It's not that difficult of a job with the proper tools. First and foremost if I were going to do this job, I would get a manual and read through it to see if my/your abilities match up against the job.
Bleeding the brakes after you finish is the easy part of the job. since its a closed system you just open the bleeder and push the air out. More on that later if you decide to do it.
