Brake Pads - Front, Replacement - DIY Article
« on: 19 September, 2010, 03:41:00 PM »
I have prepared a DIY article with lots of pictures about front brake pads replacement. Here is a link to it Brake Pads - Front, Replacement.
As with my previous articles, I will look forward to receive feedback with errata and suggestions from reviewers, either directly in this thread or via PM.



I propose to use this thread for discussion of front brake issues.

You can see a list of other articles about Honda CBF1000A, Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade and BMW S1000RR here.

Regards ... Fred   :041:

Nice one, as usual, Fred. With very useful images, thanks.
Just a couple of comments on the article, which I will email you about soon.

Jumbo - I will look forward to receiving your feed-back with PM or email.
You made me realize that I forgot to ask for review and feed-back as done with the other articles. I will add such a request to the first post.

Hi Fred

For some reason I can not open your link.  I have no doubt though that any article you pen will be to your usual (and now expected :164: ) extraordinarily high quality.

I have been told that BB has one of his admin chaps revamping the forum to allow tech articles to be posted direct by members.  They have also said that when their testing of the revamped site is complete you previous unposted articles will be posted by them.  About time and I can't wait but I have been cautioned that it may still take them a while to complete their work.

Andy - both links works when I try them - could you give it an extra test to see how that goes.
Sounds good that BB and his chaps are working.

Jumbo - thanks very much for your input on spelling and formulation. I have incorporated all your input in a newly uploaded version. It really helps making the text more clear and understandable  :028:

You're welcome, Fred.
It was good to at least be able to talk bikes when a sore throat was keeping me off bikes today.

Fred .. First of all, I think your articles are great and I think everybody will really appreciate the time and effort you have put into them all so far. The same goes for Terry and his engine articles.

It is so easy for people to critise, so I do not envy anybody who writes articles.... I have to do it for a living so I know !!! and I certainly do not want to be seen as being destructive with your articles as they are of immense value to folks with limited mechanical experience  and possibley to those who have experience as well !!!

But ..... from a technical Authoring point of view,  a few gramatical errors remain and also, there is no reference in the text to the illustrations and vice versa.

I always read articles as if I know nothing about the subject and then try to follow what is being said. I find that to be the best way

Both links opened for me ok.

I agree with nbells that it would be handy to number the pics fig 1 , fig 2 etc and refer to them in the text.

Still very useful though, thanks fred

Hi nbells and Steve, thanks for input  :152:
I'm improving the image referencing and will update the article - probably sometime tomorrow.
I'm also checking up on a technical matter. I forgot to mention to watch out for overflow in the rear brake fluid reservoir also, as this is conntected to one of the three pistons in the front calliper. I just need to check if this is 100 % correct first. The Honda Shop Manual does not mention this either.
