    Front brake pad replacement - don't do what I did!

    It should have been easy enough if I followed the book. I did, but if you remove the wrong bolt (the one closest to the fork), it become infinitely more difficult to remove the pads. Not impossible, just really hard.

    Remove the bolt to the right, the one that the inside of the caliper floats on. Simple, swing the outside caliper out of the way. Pads drop right out.

    Remove this bolt -



    Swing away outside caliper

    Push out old pads

    Put in new pads

    Swing back

    Put in bolts on other side and tighten and away you go!!
