Re: brake change?

First, brake the retaining pins loose, they look like recessed allen head. Remove those, paying attention to how they also hold that metal spring pad on the top. Now remove the two bolts holding the calipers tot he fork and slide the caliper back and off. WIth a large screwdriver, insert between between the old pads, and spread them apart. Watch your master cylinder fluid resivoure, youmay have to suck some out to prevent if from overflowing. remove the pins and spring pad, pull the old pads out, and reasemble in opposit order.
