Brake job. . .

Well, it took me a total of three hours, but with the guidance and help from Ding Dong, I got the brakes on my 1996 GL1500 done today.

I double checked every thing, greased all the slider pins, flushed out all the old brake fluid, and found a few problems that required fixing or will as soon as I get the parts. Missing bolts, screws, retightened some bolts and screws, that kind of thing.

Ding Dong was a huge help, kept me from rushing and from removing stuff I didn't have to and showed me stuff I did not realize had to be removed too. . . . He is a man I am proud to call a friend ! Thanks again for the help buddy ! :D

Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself. Our stress about it happens when the two aren't the same. Be true to yourself and to hell with what everyone else thinks!
