How To Change The Brake Pads On Your 2009 – 2010 Honda CRF450r.
The Tools You Will Need Are:
- Flathead Screwdriver
- 5mm Hex Wrench
- 8mm Socket
- Torque Wrench
The parts you will need are a set of brake pads for front and rear calipers.
If you don’t have your rebuild kit yet, you can get the one I am using HERE (link to RockymountainATVMC.com).
Changing your pads can cost between $5 and $25, depending on what pads you go with, and should take about 15 minutes.
Make sure to start your pad change with clean calipers!
Brake Pad Removal:

|Start by removing the pad pin plug and pad pin from the caliper.|
|Push your caliper in and out to make room, and the old pads should come right out.|
Clean & Inspect:
|Unless something is obviously damaged, the only thing you need to replace are your pads.|
Brake Pad Installation:
|When installing your new pads, you will not be able to see your outside pad, so you will have to feel for the pad retainer. And it will feel like this looks.|
|Place the outside pad fist, and hold it in place with the pin.|
|Place the inside pad, then install the pad pin.|
