As the title says, I cannot install the left rear brake pad. It is too tight, even tried banging on it a little. I have EBC Double-H Sintered (FA436HH). They look exactly like the pads I want to replace. The entire pad's thickness measures 8.7mm.

What's wrong? Is my rear brake rotor warped really bad?

the caliper slides on pins, so when the piston extends it pulls the left pad towards it. if the slide is seized then you need to pull the caliper apart, pull the pins, clean and grease them, then put it all back together.

That explains why i couldn't push the caliper to push in the piston (had to use a screwdriver). Would this also be a reason for loss of rear braking power? My current pads still have enough material, but since it was such an easy job, I figured I may as well replace them (and maybe get my rear brake working like it was until very recently).

lack of power is probably glazed pads and rotor, i'll go ahead and assume you have it bled properly.

if you have a seized caliper it's likely you had pads dragging which would glaze the pads and rotor.


you'll have to pull everything apart and clean it up. it's not a hard job.



your attitude about maintenance seems to be catching up with you haha

I've been a good boy for the past year + (except for my valves, and clutch, lol). I was even going to replace my fairings until the fuel pump issue arose. But yeah, guess I'll give a go at tearing apart my caliper (man I hate bleeding brakes).
