Replace front brakes, need photos

The brake info in topic "How do you brake your Wing?" Shows photos of replacing the rear brake, any photos on replacing the fronts without removing the front wheel ?

No need to remove the wheel. Push the pads back into the caliper to depress the cylinders. Pull the little rubber cap over the pin, uinscrew it and the pads should come right out. Be careful installing the pads. They have to go into the clips on the top of the caliper. Clean the pin and lube the O-ring with some silicone grease.
Just watch the placement of the metal shims on the pads.

The Honda service manual does have some photos as it explains the process.
