Brother .. thank you very much for your quick reply ... Brother is there any tutorial floating around or could you one make one with a pic of rear disk ?? It would be great since am a newbie !Start off by backing the pads off the rotor as much as you can, if you are replacing the pads. You will need the clearance for the new pads. It will back some of the fluid up into the reservoir.
Remove the silver bolt that goes through a hole in each pad.
Remove the rear caliper bolt (its a floating caliper).
Rotate the rear of the caliper up and you should be able to remove the pads.
I did not read this in any manual but it seems rather straightforward.
Done a few hundred brake jobs.
Brother are you sure that under the rubber boot there is an Allen bolt..or...Is it a guess??? Can someone verify?I wish I had my bike here at my shop so I can see. I know it's fairly simple. The side that has the accordian looking rubber boot should have a bolt inside tward the front. If so pull that out "usually an allen bolt" and the caliper should pivot upwards twards the back of the bike. Pull the pin that holds the pads in place and pull them out. I'll have my bike back next week so I could know for sure.
Ya, and then I'm the one at the shop that gets too attempt to fix what you screwed up. Ends up costing you more money and gives me a migraine.I don't agree. A service manual and the desire to learn should be sufficient.
However, you do need to read first, and to be patient and careful while you do the work.
And no, I hate my job....Not happy with your job....
