Thumbs up changing pads 4 pad Brembos

This is for 4 pad Brembos only, the ones with the POS springs and pins

remove a caliper, with a large flat tip screwdriver twist it between the pads, pushing the

pistons all the way back in with the hose at the high point......do the other caliper

drain the M/C reservoir and wipe clean with a lint free cloth..... refill with new DOT 4

and pump the pistons back out to their ~ original position ......tie the brake lever part

way down to close the return port

now using the bleed screws remove the last of the old brake fluid from the calipers by

using the screwdriver again

hold a caliper upside down and remove the old pads, now put a new pad in and press

it down, now tilt it into place.....repeat

remount calipers, untie brake lever, pump brakes until they are firm

recheck fluid level.....

now there's no air in the system, you have new fluid and pads......

and best of all you didn't have to deal with the POS springs and pins

Where are the pictures?

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.


Skye I miss you. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.
