Or so it said on the v-strom forum. The bit I'm stuck on is "slide the rod out". I can do the bit before ( remove cotter pin ) and I'm sure the other wil be fine. I just cant get this rod out that is holding both pads in place at one end.Talk about a piece of cake. Remove front caliper (2x14mm bolts), remove a cotter pin from retaining rod, slide the rod out, and viola, just slide the brake pads off the rod on the other end. Clean caliper/pistons thoroughly with brake cleaner and a toothbrush, and re-assemble with new pads (EBC HH in my case). Torque caliper bolts to 39 Nm. Repeat on the other side. Don't forget to pump up the front brake a bunch of times to get the pads against the rotors.
Anyone tell me how I can get this rod out? Its (2) in the picture that should appear below.
