Brake Pads

Brake Pads

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:

  1. Support the bike on the center stand.
  2. Leave the fork free to turn because it’s advantageous to be able to rotate the front wheel for access. 
  3. 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 
  4. 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.
  5. 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 
  6. Carefully remove the clips with needle-nose pliers.
  7. 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.
  8. Next, check the master cylinder reservoir to make sure fluid isn’t overflowing.
  9. Lastly, prepare the new pads and reinstall the retaining pins and clips
