I bought this kit for O'Bugga and now I need to replace the pads. Will I have to take the caliper apart or do the pins on the top pull out?
Hey dude, Use a small punch and hammer (make sure your pushing the smaller end of the pins, so as the fatter end is coming out). The pins hold down a thin metal plate, behind that is your pads. When putting new pads in you have to push the pistons into the callipers, this is where you can do some damage. Get a piece of wood against the piston and a big vice grip or "C" clamp. Use wood, dont go metal to metal!
Thanks man, you tech guys have got it going on!
