Wink The rear brake pads

The part that seemed like it would be impossible was pushing the pistons in and then getting the pads in right. But that all happened pretty easily even tho you;'re sorta flying blind since it's hard to see what you're doing. Overall it was much easier than i thought it would be, which is the opposite of most other experiences i have working on this monstrosity.
You dont even have to remove the muffler, took us Gary and me 15 min to do the
rear brake pads. Just lift the bike up to a suitable hight, jack the rear end take a chair under
your butt and start with the procedure above. Its easy when you sit under the bike.
