Cant get front tire back on 2011 yamaha ttr 125 le motorcycle how to loosen front break pads to put tire back on

Hi, great bike! take two flat blade screwdrivers; place 1 on top of pads, in between the pads,and the other opposite the first screwdriver then gently flex the screwdrivers sideways. You are squeezing the brake fluid back into the master cylinder on the handlebar. do it gently. you should now have enough room to slide the disc back into place and put the axle in. Happy riding.

How to release front brakes

There is a brake release lever either on the brakes themselves or on the brake handle. It will be the only thing that you can move without a tool besides the brake operating handle itself. If you can't find it, you can always deflate the tire. One other thought-- it is possible that the brakes were adjusted with the brake release lever in the wrong position. If that is the case, when you move the brake release lever you will tighten rather than loosen the brakes. Good luck

How adjust rear breaks when changing break pads

There is no adjustment when changing pads. How do you compress the piston? If it's electric parking brake, then you can't, you HAVE to take it to a VW shop. If it's not, then you screw in the back pistons, and pushing in the front one's with a C clamp or something.

Got a guy to change break pads for me on my car. breaks now drag

i assume you mean the front pads, because the back are probably it both front wheels or just one? if it is the front brakes locking up, its either the hose to that caliper is collapsed or the caliper it self is faulty. if its the rear brakes, its possible they were put on backwards...little shoe goes toward the fron and the bigger one goes toward the back...maybe they were put together say if this guy that did your brakes, cant figure the problem out, then he shouldnt be doing brake jobs!
