Brake pads provide the friction to slow or stop your vehicle. There’s a lot more to effectively using your motorcycle braking system than simply stomping on the pedal when a dog darts out in front of you.
Instructions on how to change brake pads:
- Support the bike on the center stand.
- Leave the fork free to turn because it’s advantageous to be able to rotate the front wheel for access.
- Cut a length of fuel line to fit between the grip and the lever, then pass along zip-tie around the grip, through the hose and around the lever
- Simple pad replacement can be done with the calipers bolted to the fork legs, but it’s better to remove them so you can closely inspect the components.
- Remove the bolts and set them aside. On fixed calipers such as these Brembos, rotate the retaining pins so you can see the loop end of the retaining clips
- Carefully remove the clips with needle-nose pliers.
- Reinsert the old pads and wedge a chunk of wood (or a large screwdriver) in between them to push the pistons back into their bores.
- Next, check the master cylinder reservoir to make sure fluid isn’t overflowing.
- Lastly, prepare the new pads and reinstall the retaining pins and clips
