I have a 2018 T120 and I have never replaced brake pads on any bike I have owned but am thinking it is not too difficult and I could learn by watching an online video.

Is this a good idea? I was thinking about buying EBC brand from local dealer. They have two from this brand one is about $30 and the other is about $36 each.

Should I be looking at another brand?

I replaced mine with the EBC pads pictured. It wasn’t difficult to do along with the help of my Haynes manual. On a scale of ten, I’d give it a difficulty rating of 3. I think it’s a good idea!

You gave me the encouragement I needed with your rating of 3/10 on a difficulty scale. I would agree with your rating now that I am done.
It took me about a half hour. I watched a video online to get the general idea. I just tested them out and they work great. Thanks again for the reply!!!

Good for owners of newer T120's. Still an issue on my 2017 T120 though. Doesn't affect braking performance, just annoying

I've experienced it on a couple occasions on my 2016 T120. It seems to have gone away. It does still make a high frequency noise when backing up and applying the front brake though. Good on you Road_Gypsy for trying and succeeding with this wrenching job!
