See attached files for step by step instructions.

As to the brake pads, you can go OEM, or go with aftermarket brands such as EBC.

I have always gone for EBC and I was never disappointed. But the factory brakes on my RS are so lovely that I don't know if I want to mess too much with them. I might just go with the OEM just because I love how they feel now.

As the owner of a 2013 Street Triple who has yet to need to change the rear brake pads, I have to ask why you are replacing them on a 2018 bike?

Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean the whole world isn't out to get me.
Words mean things.

My life is not without meaning. I can be held up as a bad example.

I just want to learn how to do it, both my front and rear pads no where near the wear mark.

Okay, that explains it. If your front brakes are anything like mine, it's the most simple pad swap I've ever done.
