Suzuki GS500 rear pads

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by Billsy, Jun 11, 2007.

  1. Hey fellas...got squeaky rear brakes and was wanting to know how to remove pads...done a car but not a bike...same principal?

  2. There is a plastic inspection cover on the caliper. To remove them there should be some small r clips holding in two rods.

    You will need to push the pistons back using something. The back is an opposed piston so a g clamp wont help. There is a special tool available otherwise leaving the old pads in and trying to lever them back in with a flat screwdriver is probably the best way.

    Dont forget to loosen the lid on the brake reservior :D
  3. Ok thanks suzuki i`ll give it a whirl
