brake change

Is the changing of the rear break pads as straight forward as I think? I have done disc brakes on cars numerous times so I am tempted to do my own on my '00 R1100RT. My only concern is the ABS. Comments or warnings? Thanks!

It is a straightforward job - details of how to do it can be found in the IBMWR Oilhead Maintenance Manual.

Thanks,

Printed the pages and saved the website. I now have a quick project for the weekend.

 

Yeah, Andy's right. It's really no different than changing the pads on a non-ABS bike.

 

While you're in there, if it's been more than a year or so, it might be a good idea to bleed/flush the system with some fresh (i.e. a brand new bottle that has never been opened) DOT 4.

Replaced the Front and rear pads this morning, was a lot easier then I thought once you have the correct tools, the pads were not as badly worn as I initially thought but I change them anyway, the outer pad on both sides (front) seemed to have more wear than the inner pad!
