GL100 front brake pad shims A and B

Postby Nealschoen » Wed Apr 20, 2016 8:31 pm



Just got the right pads and as I dismantle the front calipers I notice there were no shims behind them. Can I go ahead and put in the new pads until I can find them online somewhere?

Both sides. Any idea what shipping to Ontario Canada would be? Our dollar us only worth 78cents US.
