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:wink2:

Dirty dirty filthy caliper ;)
While on the subject, how on earth do you guys get the 4 pistons to move in unison??

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.

...or you could go all advanced:

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

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

Car tool, Chuck, way too thick to fit in bike calipers:wink2:
Actually, it is a bike tool. The picture is deceiving. There are several differing sizes and configurations by several manufacturers.

FWIW, I like Noel's method. Fast, easy, cheap, effective.

Those who have witnessed be reinstall brakes after bleeding have seen me gently use two wide blade screwdrivers to accomplish the same thing.

No way that mechanism is fitting in a 5mm space....side plates must be 3mm at least or ridged 2mm
Or they just bend:wink2:

When you are right, you are right.
