I am in the process of renewing my rear brake pads and thought that four before-and-after pix may be of interest to someone out there.
I haven't finished the job yet - it's too cold just now to lie around the back wheel! The hardest part was removing the two hanger pins, which were so tight that I had to use Mole grips on the allen-key as an extension - I don't think they have been touched since the bike was made. Full instructions for replacing the rear brake pads are on Le Dude's site so there's no point repeating it here. It's very straight forward - although if you are not sure about anything pm me.Jim said:Yes, it is of interest :thumbup: And just how did you do it?
I am replacing the pads with Goldfren HH type made in the Czech Republic. PS: Your pictures re how to do the job are so good they should be a sticky!Jim said:I did a DIY for brakes in '08 Pictures: Rear Brake Pads and Lub. for '03 650 Standard, so that's not an issue for me.
I was curious, when you say "Renew" are you replacing, or reconditioning the pads ?
If they are reconditioned, you did an excellent job.
