Front Brake Pad Replacement Procedure?

Just followed Petevandyke's rear brake pad procedure with ease. Is there a similar document (detailing step by step procedures) for replacing Front Pads?
Had a look in the "Hall of Wisdom" and didn't see anything there.
Thanks,
Keir

Thumbs up Re: Front Brake Pad Replacement Procedure?

The front is even easier because of easier access, and especially since you have the BMW calipers that do not need to be removed.
Just pull the spring clips and then the retaining pins and you can remove the pads upward. Push the pistons back in, drop in new pads, re-insert the retaining pins and spring clips. Start engine and squeeze the front brake handle a few times to move the pistons and pads into place before riding, and you set set my friend!!!
