Front Brake - is this right?
took the plunge and replaced my front brake pads today, figured it was a simple procedure, and it was once I got the corroded pins out, and the corroded screws out...groan!
One picture (sorry poor quality) is a view of the Pots inside my calliper, and the other a brake calliper from a Kwaker ZZR.
My pots don't have any thing in them if you get my drift, I've looked on the parts fiche and there doesn't appear to be anything missing, but on the ZZR brake, the pots have like a liner inside them I guess to distribute the pressure across the brake pad face.
Now I don't think there is anything wrong with mine, matches the parts Fiche, and don't see anything in the Climer manual to suggest other wise, but I'm sure some brain on here will tell us all why the Bemmer brake is like it is compared to the Kwaker brake.
Oh, took a while to clean all the dis-similar metal corrosion that had started to take hole, but the brakes are all nice and clean with new shoes. Just got to take care and bed them in proper like!
