Front Brake Pads

A look at replacing the front brake pads.....



BTW - if you break loose the banjo fitting for the brake line, you'll get a whole new education in bleeding brakes. If it isn't necessary, don't do it.









Most likely the piston will need to move back into the caliper to install new pads. You can use the old pads with a c-clamp to SLOWLY compress the piston back into the caliper. Don't tighten too much. Common sense.

Then clean all parts with brake cleaner and lube the pins under the rubber seals.

Now apply anti-squeal grease to piston and backs of pads.

I did not have "anti-squeel" grease, but I got some white grease off the tip of my grease gun and used it.  No probs so far.  

Anything special about anti-squeel?  I figured grease was grease (except the dialectric points grease).

Most of the time  if You smear liberally the back of the pads with some silicone, the noise disapears. Also when You pull the fr. wheel out it will be a good idea to take out the brake rotor and use a fine sand paper/500 and above/ to brake the glase.

Good tip Slavy - I did that the other day - put the bike on the jack and spun tire awhile with 600 grit on the rotor - never been quiter - these are SBC ceramic pads that didn't make much noise - but the little they did is gone.

The anti-squeal stuff has a high melting temperature.  Calipers can get hot and you don't want the grease to melt and drip on the friction surfaces.

My Clymer's manual states that you should use a torque wrench to re-tighten some of the bolts (I forgot which one) to the proper tightness.

When I look at my Clymer's tonight, I'll know which ones and report that info here.

Cheers. Tammi

Edit:

The torque for the mounting bolts is 18-28 ft.-lbs., and it's 7-11 ft.-lbs. for the pad pin bolt.
