My 2002 suzuki gsxr 1000 has lost its rear brakes. the pads are good and theres plenty of fluide. ive tryed bleeding them and the pads still will not engage


When you bleed brakes make sure bleed nipple is pointing downwards and the whole caliper is upside down so the fluid runs through the whole system, each time i change pads on mine i have to do this for some reason. Hope that helps

Hello, I'm changing rear break pads on my softail


I'm going to attach a photo to this solution. The bolts you are taking out hold the caliper together. You don't want to take these out to simply replace the pads. If you're rebuilding the caliper, you'll have to split the caliper to get the pistons out. But, just to replace the pads. You'll see two pins (#35 on the pic) that run across the between the two halves of the caliper. These pins hold the pads into the caliper.

First you must use a large screwdriver to pry the old pads apart. You must get the pistons seated fully down into the caliper. Once you get the pistons seated, drive these pins out to the rear of the caliper. Lift the pads out and drop the new pads in with the fiber side towards the rotor. Do not put the pads in with metal to metal. Don't laugh, i've seen it done before. Then install on pin, install the spring plate that holds the pins in and the brake pads tight, and finally the last pin.

Since you broke the torque on the bolts that hold the caliper together, make sure they are tight. You may have to bleed the brakes as well. Make sure you have a full firm brake pedal and test the brakes to make sure they work before riding the bike.

Will I need a caliper reset tool kit to change the brakes on my 2007 toyota sienna or will a standard c-clamp do the job? And since it is an ABS system, I assume that brakes must be bled, correct?

2005 Vegas: trying to change the brake pads...


There are 2 pins holding the pads inplace, There is a Y pin,or clip holding the pins in. First thing is to turn the pins so that you can pull the clips off or out, and then pull the pins out, the pad cover will then come or fall off. the pads then pull right out of the calipers. P.S. make sure that you press the cyclenders back flush before you install the new pads. Also inspect the caliper for wear or damage and replace or have them refaced (Turned) if possable. When you start to put it all back together be sure to get the pins back throught the cover. pump up your brakes and ride safe!!

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
