Tokica Caliper
on: May 27, 2019, 11:34:45 AM
Has anyone done a write up on changing the front and rear brake pads?  I don't need to do this for a while as I acquired the bike with very low mileage but as someone who likes to do as much maintenance as possible it would be nice to know of any tricks.

On the front calipers I presume that that the retaining pins only need to be slackened at first?  Then remove the whole caliper.  Once in your hand the retaining pads, clips etc can all then be removed.

Looking at the caliper there is obviously no way that he pads can be removed from the top as with my Fazer 800.

The rear caliper looks a bit tricky to access being so low down.

Do you have the Service Manual?

Here are the 2 relevant pages.

Wow that's helpful, many thanks.  Is the manual available on line?

Also I note that the WS manual states replace the caliper using new bolts.  Seems a bit over kill.  Is that absolutely necessary?

Honda always recommend changing the mounting bolts every time.

I never have. YMMV.
