Replacing rear brake pads procedure?

Couldn't find it with "Search". Can someone link me to a procedure please?

You're seriously saying you couldn't find anything about changing pads by searching ?

I recently did this procedure and found about half a dozen picture and step-by-step threads

-click search
-search for 'brake' (but search thread titles only, not posts)
-narrow your search to only the "Maintenance How-To" section

Using the Google search box just below the top bar yields better results than the Search button in the top bar.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

I adjusted my clutch and I changed the rear brake pads on my bike this past Saturday. As usual, I took a bunch of photos..... I posted them to an album on my Facebook page.

If you would like to see a step-by-step procedure of the two jobs, follow this LINK
