If your changing to Pads and not putting the old ones back in, use WD40 on the pin and let it soak in. I normally rotate the pin with some plyers and then work it's way out. Make sure you soak the pin with WD40 and let it sit for aa fir while so it has time to soak in

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.

How do I remove the front brake disc pads on my 2006 cs500f

12 mm wrench or socket to remove the caliper.
Once caliper off , compress the cylinders with c-clamp or big screwdriver.
Remove the pads, one at a time and take note if there is a difference between inner and outer.
Some have a pin that goes through the upper part of the pad, of course you'll have to remove the pin before the pad will come out.
Install the new pads, install pins if yours has pins, install the caliper and tighten.

NOTE: Before you test drive squeeze the front brakes severeral time to push out the calipers to the disc, otherwise when you go to stop there wont be any brakes unless you pump it back up first.
You shouldn't have to bleeed them or anything. you shouldn't have to add any brake fliud either.
Can be done in less than 1/2 hour.

How do i replace my brake pads on a 1991 dr350

You didn't specify front or rear so I will hit both.
Start with the front. Refer to this diagram:
Unbolt bracket 13 from the fork leg, then remove the 2 brake pad retaining pins #12. The brake pads can then be removed. You will have to compress the spring #5 when putting the pads back in to be able to reinstall the pins #12.
On the rear, refer to this page:
You have one of two choices, either remove the rear wheel so you can drop the pads out by removing the brake pad retaining pins #13 or unscrew #8 from the caliper bracket then remove the caliper.
