How do i change the front break pads on 2008 klx 250


Unbolt the caliper from the front fork.Loosen brake fluid reservoir cap on throttle side of handle bar. Remove the outboard pad ( pad on outside of caliper) and use a 6 inch C clamp to depress piston back into caliper housing. Make sure the clamp presses on the old pad and not directly on the piston end as you might press the piston sideways and scar up the cylinder wall, ruining the caliper. Compress piston until it is flush on the inside case of the caliper. Let sit 5 minutes for the pressure to leak down to keep the piston in place. Remove clamp and inboard pad and replace pads. Remount caliper, tighten bolts and pull the brake lever 5 or 6 times. Check brake fluid level with handlebars straight and top off if necessary.
Hope this helps!!

When riding an annoying rattle is coming from


Go to your local autoparts store. There is a blue aeresol you can spray on the back of the pads. This should DEFINITELY help, if not solve the problem altogether.

Squeaking sound from the front tire


It's sounds like the brakes, Someone might have used the front brake really hard. try spraying the front caliper with a water hose to wash the brake dust from between the pads and the rotor. If that don't work pull the caliper off and see if the pads are glazed over. If they are you can take some fine sand paper and rough them up a little bit.
