You could try bleeding them or replacing the lines with steel braid, but at the end of the day it's still a single caliper basic design. Cleaning helps too.
    What is the best way to clean them?

    I remove the pads and scrape any brake dust out of where it isn't supposed to be, around the edges, in the groove, on the back. Blast it with some brake cleaner.

    Inside the caliper I use dish soap, hot water and a toothbrush to get the gunk out. Follow up with brake cleaner to get the stubborn bits out.

    Also check to see that pistons aren't stuck. Push on one of them, the other should move out, and when it's out further than normal you can clean the normally recessed part of the piston and push it back in, do the other one. Don't need to push it too much, it can fall out, then you have a mess...

    Lots of YouTube videos on this, just don't twist up or stress the lines. I hang the whole caliper with some cord over a bucket of hot soapy water.
