I'm getting ready to do the front pads on my 97 6R and the rear pads on my buddy's F3. Does anybody know of a link to a step-by-step for either of these procedures? Thanks!

All I see under the FAQ is a guide to replacing fluids, NinjaRider. Am I missing something?

Thanks, Grunt!

Brakes on bikes are done almost identically as they are on cars.

Remove caliper to fork bolts.
Remove caliper from fork.
Remove pads from caliper (you might have to remove any bolts or braces that secure the pads to the calipers. Some calipers have clips that secure the pads just like the memory slots on a motherboard).
Open master cylinder.
Squeeze pistons back into calipers using the old pads and a large c-clamp (some people like to put a hose onto the bleed valve and open the valve before they squeeze the pistons back in to remove and replace the brake fluid that's been abused in the pistons over time).
Insert new pads into calipers.
Reinstall calipers onto forks.
Squeeze brake lever several times until firmness is restored. Add fluid to the master cylinder.
Bleed brakes if needed/desired.

BC.
