I am about to replace my brake pads on my '02 and I am wondering about how long does the job take to do yourself. The OrangeRush is my only form of transportation and my wife keeps the cage on the road.

Thanks

Actually the job should only take a few minutes per caliper. The pads are very easy to replace without taking any of the bike apart. I do not remember the details but the pads slip in and out without removimg the calipers from the bike.

Just checked mine

I have 31k miles on my 02 and just checked the pads the other day. Looks like they have a few thousand miles at the most left in them, so will probably replace them in the Spring before primary riding season begins here in CO.

Time to replace brake pads

I have used the EBC pads since changing out the first OEM. I find them to be just as good, if not better than OEM, and they are cheaper. No squeal, no chatter or scored discs.

What is EBC. I am a relatively new Wing owner, so don't know all the abreviations yet.

EBC = brand name for aftermarket brake pads.

(FWIW board sponor has OEM pads on sale.)

Tim - yes you can remove the pins and yes the brake pads will fall out, but I decided to take my caliphers apart and do a good thorough cleaning and then install the pads and remount them. It took longer than the videos will show it might be possible to do, but I felt better just knowing everything was cleaned and done thoroughly. Depending upon how you do it I'd still consider it a good afternoon's job, but nothing extensive or complicated.

Theone - EBC and other pads are here:
