Change front brake pads Suzuki Katana.

Postby jumjum_0214 » Thu Oct 04, 2007 4:57 pm

Been having a look at my front pads, they are looking low - a couple of mm left. :scoot1

My question is: :blah:

Do i need to remove the caliper to change them or do i just undo the metal clip and slide em out?? :idea:

Is this an easy job? :shock:

Thanks for your help :W

katana have the brembo like aerox? it's pretty easy (although not in the case of my dads typhoon :cry: )

just take caliper off forks, remove tiny springy thing, knock the pin through, remove little bracket, ue screw driver to push old pads away from disc, remove old pads, insert new ones, then put back together and pump the brakes afew times and your sorted.

Not forgetting to carefully clean the caliper once the pads are removed, then checking that both the pistons retract freely, the rubber seals are in good order, and applying a smear of coppa slip to the pins and back of the pads before reassembling.

Then checking the brake fluid level....

At least tell him how to do a proper job eh? :lol:
