Question about 2004 Yamaha YZ 125
I have got some new brake pads but have never changed them before and i dont know where to start
I would first invest in a service manual for yhe bike. Bikes take a lot of general maint. and not everything is in the owner's maual. Most of the times you can find images on line though. Changing them is pretty easy though.
The caliper holds the pads, and is usually held on by 2 screws. Take those 2 off and remove the caliper. Unscrew the brake pads and remove. Now in order to reinstall the pads, you are going to need something like a C clamp to compress the piston down (behind one of the pads). once compressed, remove the clamp and install the pads. Put the caliper back on and test the brakes. make take a couple of tries to get the piston back into position.
Get the manual first though, really it will help a lot if you plan on keeping this bike.
