I already know how but pics would definitely have been more helpful.
I've never replaced them. I use loctite on them though.I've got a quick question, I just got my new pads and am going to replace them probably tomorrow, but in the Clymer manual I got with my bike under the brake service it says, "Warning: Replace the caliper mounting bolts every time they are removed. They have stretched and cannot be tightened to the correct torque specification during installation"
But from every how-to I've looked through it says nothing about replacing these bolts. So I guess the question is, do they really need to be replaced? is my manual wrong?
Just a question regarding dual brake systems on the front. which caliper should you do first and last? or it doesn't matter???thanks ^
Quick how to for bleeding brakes:
1) Wrench for bleed nipple
2) 3/4" clear tubing (i think...haha) and glass container with hold punched in cap
3) funnel, Phillips head screw driver, DOT 4 fluid, cloth..etc etc
4) I use ATE super blue, its really easy to tell when the blue fluid starts flowing through the tubing, that you are done!!!
note: next time I'll use ATE super gold...you get the point.
1) remove front shield
2) bike on side stand and turn handle bar all the way left. This will make the brake reservoir level with ground
3) remove reservoir cover and rubber seal and level thingy - lol
4) get the tube on the nipple. other end goes into the bottle.
1) PRESS brake leverx2 - unscrew nipple <fluid flows through tube and lever bottoms out> screw nipple - release lever.
REPEAT exactly in order ^^^
2) keep a close eye on fluid level in reservoir and fill it up. keep doing until clear blue fluid flows through tubing.
repeat for other caliper.
same concept for rear caliper.
