1.remove right saddlebag.
2.If ABS equipped, carefully cut cable strap to release rear wheel speed sensor cable from brake hose to caliper.
3.remove 2 screws to release brake caliper from caliper bracket.
4.remove brake caliper from brake rotor.
NOTE: do not operate brake pedal with rear brake caliper removed.
The instructions tell you to stand the bike upright and remove the rear master cylinder reservoir cover, if you do this you have to take measures to protect the paint. I have found that it is NOT NECESSARY to remove the cover on the rear brake master cylinder reservoir, THE PISTONS WILL PUSH IN JUST FINE WITHOUT THE REMOVAL OF THE COVER.
5.alternately push each pad back until pistons are fully seated in the bores.
6. pull retaining clip from groove in pad pin.
7.remove pad pin.
8. remove the brake pads.
9. install new brake pads making sure to put the brake pad lubricant on the rear of the pads.
10. install brake pad pin with retaining clip.
11.install brake caliper onto the brake caliper bracket.
12. pump rear brake pedal to set the pads. (if you took off the cover of the rear brake reservoir you will have to put the cover back on before pumping the brake pedal, then you may have to remove the cover to fill the reservoir after setting the pads)
13.reattach the ABS cable & put the saddlebag back on.
I shorten the instruction some, but this will get you through the brake pad replacement just fine.
