Question about 2007 Victory Kingpin Touring
Replacing motorcycle rear brake pads
With the weather getting nicer, a lot of motorcyclists are dusting off
their motorcycles and performing their routine spring tune up. One very
important area to check is your brakes. Otherwise it will be very
difficult to stop by just dragging your feet going 50 mph.
I will mainly focus this article on replacing the rear brake pads. This job is very simple, and takes less then a half hour. Even a government employee could do it.
1] For this step you will use a flat tip screwdriver between the pad, and rotor. Gently pry the pad outward to push the piston back in the caliper.
2] Find and remove the retaining clip on the pin. Remove clip.
3] Using a small punch drive the pin half way out. You will want to leave it so that it holds the inboard pad in place.
4] Remove, and replace the outboard pad. Make sure that it is seated in the caliper. Slide your punch in the hole so that the pad stays in place.
5] Pull pin the rest of the way out, and replace the inboard pad.
6] Re install the pin through both pads. I use a long extension, and go through the wheel to knock the pin in completely.
7] Finally, reinstall the retaining clip.
I am glad to post this and help you....... Now that I have ruined my dust cover boot trying to find a bolt to remove, to replace the pads. This is THE ONLY HELP YOU CAN FIND ON THE VICTORY REAR BRAKES ON THE WEB! Please believe me. :[ Now if any one can help me in finding a place to order the rubber dust covers for the rear brake calipers on a 04 Vegas I will be forever grateful. Thanks to all that try to help me. AND I NEED LOTS OF IT :} Ken..
