Motorcycles whilst fun and exciting, come with maintenance and care. Part of being a good rider or even just a safe rider is continually taking care your bike. Treat it like your baby, because it is. Part of good care is replacing your brake pads when they need to be replaced. If you are uncomfortable with this make sure to ask the right people for help. We believe in your abilities to change brake pads, so we put together a list of steps.

#1: Step One

Remove the brake-pin plug. This is a small screw-plug that protects the brake pin from filling up with mud and gunk. Then, using a tight-fitting Allen key, unscrew the brake pin and encourage the pads to drop out. When I tried changing these disc pads, the only thing that came out was a long chain of swear-words… There was no way on earth those pads would drop out, so I had to remove the brake calliper bracket first.

#2: Step Two

While you have the brake system exposed, it pays to clean all the compacted dirt and crap out of there. Failure to do this can affect your braking performance. Once clean, apply heat-resistant lube or grease to the two brake calliper pins.

#3: Step Three

Gently push back the two pistons using a screwdriver and fit the new pads. Allow enough room for the unit to fit back over the disc.

#4: Step Four

Clean and lube the brake pin and reinsert. Screw in the brake-pin plug, then reattach the entire unit to the fork.
