    Changing brake pads

    Anyone have info on how to change front brake pads? I changed the back, but the front i would'nt know where to start. By the way i think i need to take my bike to a machine shop to extract that exhaust header bolt, i broke an easy out inside of the drill hole, and now it's harder to drill out than the bolt itself.

    Fronts are just as easy as the rears. Couple of allen bolts and some clips/pins and they're out. Don't even need to crack open the manual.

    I concur with Zootech, fronts are as easy as the rears.

    And B., Yeah, I'd go to a machine shop if you've broken the easy out. Without the right tools / experience, you may never get that thing out. Sometimes it's worth spending the scratch to have someone who knows what they're doing take care of it.
