Thumbs up 4 pad Brembo pad changing the easy way

Here's the simple way .......it takes way longer to explain it than do it
1>The tools needed .....the T handle is what l use because I have it, it's my Father's '30s Dzus tool
2> Remove the caliper
3> Hold the caliper with the hose up
4> Put the wedge between the upper pads, spread the lower pads all the way with the screwdriver
5> Tilt the pads out with your finger tip, insert the new pads
6> Remove the wedge from between the upper pads and put it between the lower pads
7> Spread the upper pads and replace them
8> Remove the wedge and remount the caliper
9> Don't forget to pump the M/C up before riding

You don't... That's what he was showing. Move 2 pistons back while wedging the others in place. Swap pads then repeat with the other 2.

Noel doesn't wash his bikes....he just rides them.

Just ensure the dimensions will allow fitment into your caliper between your pads....

(I use a method very similar to Noel's.)

Actually, it is a bike tool. The picture is deceiving. There are several differing sizes and configurations by several manufacturers.
