Removing the pads is a breeze, and only takes about 10 minutes per side. There are only 2 bolts holding each caliper to the forks. The rear is just as easy, just get into the service manual that is in the FAQ's thread.Thanks JD !!!!
Jay, try this link and see if it helps
Although I can't tell you how to remove the pads. It's problably in the "how to" section.
:agree: EBC Double-H sintered. :bigthumbsup:I bought the EBC sintered pads, they make less dust than stock and are supposed to last longer. The pads on my 9 have lasted for 6,000+ miles and still look to have over half of their thickness from when new.
Don't you live in my neighborhood? :dontknow: Get the pads and give me a shout in a few weeks bro. BTW... check your rotors to see if they're scored...Any sugestions on front and rear brake pads im looking to get rid of the squeeking atleast some of it and also something that wont create so much brake dust if so where should i order them from Thanks...Jay
So you're saying that you don't really need new pads? Just trying to get rid of the squealing? :dontknow: Before I suggest how to re-bed your pads to your rotors...No but the problem im having is like a couple others on the board i reinstalled the rotors in the front and now the front brakes are squeeking almost like brake sensors on a car but when i pull in the front brake lever a alittle the noise seems to go away and my factory brake pads are still good it just dont make any sence if someone has a solution please PM me because i won't even ride the bike because people keep looking at me because its so loud Thanks...Jay
Pad life depends more on percentage of front/back braking and type of riding. I only use the rear brake when the roads are wet and I ride mostly twisties so I get only 5-8K out of a set of front pads. That said, I've never had to change rear pads on any bike. If you do 50/50 front/back braking and/or do a lot of highway miles 20-25K sounds reasonable.How many miles do you guys have on your 9 before you changed the pads? I have 17,000 and I still have 1/2 my pads left. I take alot of long rides but I don't baby my 9 by any means.:dontknow:
