need help with changing my brakes - May 6, 2009, 03:51 PM

hey all. i was wondering if somone might be able to help me.

i have the brake pads for my bike. but i dont have the tools in order to change my pads, as far as taking the wheel off and putting it back on correctly.

im not trying to take it to a shop if i can avoid it. (cost to much)

i was wondering if somone had the tools if they would help me with this.

I would of course pay. send me a pm if you would be willing to do this. and how much you would charge.

thanks.

Don't know if you need any "specialty" tools, but I'm sure we could round up whatever was needed. Only thing I know we'd need is a stand. If you want to come to Rockville, I'm down to help you out man.

Do you have to take the wheels off? My R6 , just remove the springs and slides, and they slide right out.

8 mins for the fronts and 10 mins for the rears

gettin help with mine friday, doin pads and SS brake lines....which is why I need the help

I think the pads are fairly easy - not positive, but I don't even think the wheel has to come off...maybe on a honda. What size is ur front axle nut? U can use my tools if need be and my front stand if it fits.

If you're a do-it-yourselfer,you may want to look in to Speed Bleeders.Best tool I have ever purchased.

ALL MY HEROES ARE RUSSIAN...GO CAPS!

Well you see, Norm, itís like thisÖA herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven
