Rear Brake Pads

Post by sidecarrick »

Hi, I'm Changing the Rear brake pads on my 94 gl1500. The old brake pads have some kind of spacer on the back. Do I need to put those on the new brake pads? How do you get the spacers off without destroying them? Here is a pic. Thanks for the help. Rick

You don't have to transfer anything from the old pads. Just buy some new pads and install them. OEM pads are your friend.
