BRAKE PADS - MANUAL
« on: February 17, 2014, 12:01:57 PM »
Does anyone know how I can read on line a manual in instructions on how to replace my pads myself?  Also, any on line companies who supply these cheaply and the best ones to get?  Thanks

Buy yourself the full manual for the GW250 from Suzuki - £50 - the best thing that you will buy. EBC pads are very good - Part No. FA142HH :028:

Bertrg10, even if you get the manual NEVER attempt any job especial brakes, if your not confident, you don't get 2 chances with brakes!! :087:

 :028: I don't think there is an online manual available

There's a plug, screwed in over the pad pin.
Remove that and loosen the mounting pin
Remove the 2 caliper mounting bolts
Remove the pad mounting pin and the pads
Clean the pistons and push them back into the caliper
Fit the new pads and hold them in place with the pad pin (I put a bit of copper grease on this)
Refit the caliper ( 26Nm)
Tighten the pad pin (18Nm tho I always do this by hand)
Replace the pin plug
Pump the brake lever & check the fluid level.

As the others have said, the Suzuki manual's well worth the money.

Just for interest.  I bought my bike from new and use it to commute via town and city roads and have now just completed 3500 miles. Seems a little low to be replacing pads even given the type of journey riding!  I found the suggested pads - ECB Part No. FA142HH, from Motorcycle Spares and Accessories Direct, on line which costs £23 inc pp.  I'll feed back on how I got on replacing the pads.
