Question about 2005 Honda VTX 1300 R
Personally I have never replaced pads on that particular bike but if it is like most rear disk pads, should not be too bad. I just remove the 2 bolts holding the caliper to the frame. Lift the caliper off enough to slide the pads out. Get a small C-clamp or something so you can gently push the caliper piston back in. Then install the new pads and bolt the caliper back on. Be carefull when pressing the piston back in because is might cause your master cylinder to overflow a bit. Once the pads are on the bike, pump the brake a few times until the pedal gets firm. Should be no need to bleed the system as long as you don't open any brake lines.
Hope this helps!
