Hello on each break caliper there is a spring that suppose is there to keep your pads from do that also when new pads are replaced brake quiet is put on the back of the brake pads to keep brake noise to a minimum.
The brake springs may be week due to heat from the brakes so there is less tension causing the pads to rattle.

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.

I have a 2000 chevy malibu. I recently replaced the front brake pads. After this when driving down the road when i hit bumps something in the frontend rattles, i can hear and feel it.. when i hit or ride...

A loose pad could do it.
Check the pad anti-rattle clips again. The pads should be snug in the calipers. Its possible the new pads are not the exact same shape as the old ones.

Zzr600 91 front brakes. When front lever is touched the slightest bit, i will be riding and the font brakes lock up

Hi, this means that the pistons of your front brake are not recovering properly.
If you feel confortabe with that job, you must remove brake caliper , then remove cilinders and all the protection rubber and sealing rings. Give the cilinders a good cleaning (check for scrathes or rust) replace sealers and reasemble all. Change the brake fluid and purge the circuit properly
good luck

I replaced the front brake pads on my 1999 fatboy i tightened both caliper bolts but when i ride i can hear a slight rattling sound coming from the caliper. please help. ...

Did the original pads have anti rattle springs attached to them? If they did, you should have transferred them onto the new pads. The rattling isn't dangerous by any means, but it can be annoying.

How to take pin holding rear brake pads on kx 250 2001

There should be a allen key plug to take out of the caliper then once this is out there will be another allen key head behind the plug to undo (this is the pin) just undo, take out and the pads should be able to be removed.
Pay close attention to the direction pads come out and any spacers between the pads and brake piston as you want them all back in exactly the same with the new pads they stop the pads from rattling around when riding
