Rear Brake Pad Replacement

Postby alans1100 » 21 Dec 2016, 04:42

With having to replace the brake pads I thought a little "how to do" wouldn't hurt. This is only for a basic pad change which can be done usually within 30 mins or so.

With the later 1996 and newer 1100A models with the CBS (combined brakes) it is advised in the manual that all pads front and rear should be done at the same time which I think is because there is no independent front/rear braking as on other models.

As a comparison the front and rear OEM pads are identical except that the rear pads are thicker, however, the front pads will fit the rear but you won't get both rears in the front.

First up is to remove the cap screw (what I called it) with a suitably sized screw driver

Image

Then remove the hanger pin which can be done with tools from the bike's tool kit.

Slide the old pads out next

Before installing the new pads the calliper pistons need to be pushed back in and with three of them it can be a bit tricky. Also make sure the calliper slides freely.

I've shown this parts diagram as there is a slide pin (item 13) which might cause the calliper to stick if the grease dries up and I noticed the calliper movement isn't as free as it should so next time the wheel comes out I'll grease up the pin. The manual ignores this pin when just doing a pad change. It may also be the cause of binding brakes in some cases.

Normally I install the inner pad first making sure it locates properly; the hole needs to line up or it's wrong.

Image

Because of the partly sticking calliper I had trouble getting the outer pad in but upon inspection I found the innermost piston had been pushed back in enough. I removed the inner one (to give more room) and managed to get all three pistons pushed in and installed the outer pad first then the inner. OEM pads come with backing plates etc and they usually fit but this time I left them put as they wouldn't.

Image

Lightly grease the hanger pin before installing as the pads slide along it and then replace the cap screw (I just saw the spelling error in the pic).

-----------------------------------------------------

I was going to replace the hanger pins but I need another item which is near the end of the pin. It's called a ring stopper but looks like a tiny O ring to me.

Image

Next time though and looking at the rear disk I'll need to do that and do the piston seals as well. Can't complain for a bike that's done 197,000km plus
