Thumbs up

I've read everything I can and I can work on my ltr just fine, I see all the bolts I need to get out and everything. Only thing I don't understand is what I have to do inbetween taking out the old pads and putting on the new pads. I read something about compressing a piston or something. Thanks in advance.

all you do is push the piston back flush with the caliper. The piston is the piece that pushes on the inner brake pad. Sometimes you can do it by hand but if that doesn't work use a big c clamp.

or open the bleeder press the piston in and refill the master when your done

I'm not sure the rear in the same with the E brake in side the caliper.

I tried everything, short of what shadey said, to push the caliper back in there. The c-clamp i had was a little small, but fit and no matter what i did it wouldnt go back. Had to put my old pads on that barely have any left. any pics or anything to help me out?

the problem is the ebrake is not allowing the piston to retract all the way in the caliper. Very common problem. Remove the parking break assembly, push the piston back "flush" then install the pbrake assembly or just get a block off kit now and be done with it.

P.S. diagrams can be found at bikebandit.com of all the parts you'll encounter

Good luck
