Greetings one and all.

Replacing my front brake pads. They're darn near to the plate.

So when replacing the pads with stock ones, do you need to chamfer the edges of the friction materials to reduce chatter? Or similarly do you need to put anything between the pad and piston to reduce chatter? Back in the day the chamferring would reduce squeal.

No, straight forward just do, the calibers are tricky to clear fender, don't lossen what doesn't need to be! place towels @ tank & @ m cyclinder, fill back to 1/8 from top on lean

I put a little bit of disc brake lube on the back of the pads.

Good little read HogPro, chance to say the OM is slightly different, the MC cover should be lossened and tank/fender covered....and I aways hang the front caliber or (s) with wire (frees up a beer hand), use the old pad the clamp against and so on.....the Golds always have extra mils of paint on the back which puts you to the test but the best!
