Hello Dale, this is an easy job on your bike. Use a flat head screw driver and remove the brake pad will pop off.
Remove the hairpin type clips off of the ends of the brake pad pins.... Use pliers & pull the brake pad pins out from the front of the rear brake caliper....Clean the rear brake caliper's piston with brake cleaner. Use a rag and wipe it clean...Reinsert the old brake pads into the caliper. Place a pry bar between the brake pads, then push the inner piston into the caliper body, this will allow room to install new pads.... Remove the old brake pads...Coat the brake pad pins and the new brake pads metal back plates with high-temperature grease.

Slip the new brake pads into the rear brake caliper, then push the brake pad pins halfway into the caliper. Slip the spring clips into place between the brake pads and the brake pad pins. Push the brake pad pins completely through the rear brake caliper. Push the hairpin clips back into the brake pad pin tips. Snap the brake pad cover onto the top of the rear brake caliper....

Pump the rear brake pedal until the pedal feels firm, indicating that the brake pads have closed around the brake rotor...No bleeding will be needed because the system was never opened - That's all there is to it...i hope this information is helpful & good luck with your bike.

Change rear brakes

Just follow this instructions:

1 Unbolt the brake caliper from the front fork or rear swingarm, using a socket wrench. Use a 14-mm hex socket to unscrew the front caliper bolts, and a 6-mm Allen socket for the rear caliper.
2 Slide the caliper off the brake rotor. Suspend the caliper from the handlebars or frame, if needed, using a bungee cord.
3 Pull the hair clip pin out of the brake pad's retaining pin on the outside face of the caliper using a pair of needle-nose pliers. Push the retaining pin out of the back of the caliper with your finger.
4 Pull the brake pads and their spring clip out of the caliper. Retain the spring clip, and discard the brake pads.
5 Reinstall the brake calipers, following the reverse method of removal.

I hope this will help you. thanks

There are 2 clips on the lower portion of the front brake caliper.. does anyone have a diagram of the caliper layout from a factory manual for a 2004 rmz 250. i need to figure out how each clip locks...

I believe you mean the clips that keep the brake pads from rattling.
The smaller one of the two, fits into the caliper where the front of the pads slide into the caliper. It goes between the pads and caliper, and has a slot to where the disc fits. It kinda fits into a recessed rectangle hole. (Opposite the brake pad pin.)
The longer clip has two small tabs on it's back, near the center, that clips towards the top center of the caliper, and it puts pressure downward on the pads. One end rests on the top of the pads, as the other ends up resting on the "pin" that holds the pads in place.
Look close, and you should see marks where they were, as they can only go on one correct way.
Good luck!

Do you have to take off rear wheel to do the rear brakes if not how do you do it??

hi,if you are only replacing the pads then there is no need to take the wheel off,simply undo the two bolts holding the caliper to the carrier,remove the caliper from the disc,push the brake pads back (with a screwdriver or something similar),flip the caliper over,remove the plastic cover(if fitted),remove the"r"clips that hold the brake pins in(some models have external bolts and cut plates or tabs but they all do the same job of holding the brake pins in),once you have the clips out,the pins will slide out and the pads will be able to be removed,replace the pads and reassemble opposite to removal,easy job should take about 20 mins from start to finish.dont forget ,once you have the caliper back on to pump the brake lever a few times untill the pads seat against the disc and you have full brake pressure again..hope this helps...cheers

Right side rear brake drags

Remove all rust from pad and caliper sliding surfaces,eg metal to metal,not the pins,they get synthetic brake lube. Apply anti-seize to all sliding surfaces. Make sure you can screw in the rear caliper piston,if applicable, and manually ratchet up the parking brake,after caliper and pads are on. Bleed/Flush all 4 Wheels. Make sure you can slide the pads back and forth,before lubing end tabs. You may need to file a little off the ends or just remove the paint. Make sure parking brake cables are really releasing.

How to fit rear brake pad retainer clip when i took the rear brake pads out the pad retainer clip fell out and i cannot see how the little clip fits back on

If the clip has a slot in it then it fits in the caliper where the ends of the pads fit.
If not & it has a sprung tab then it fits in the caliper where the top of the pads fit

Hope this helps.
(If it does then please mark this as 'useful')

Take off the wheel, remove the brake caliper (2 bolts on the back), then the rotor just slides off, the wheel studs are part of the hub assembly not the rotor.
