    That Yoshi exhaust is even easier to remove. You don't need to remove the band clamp. Just remove the one hanger bolt and the springs and the muffler will slide right off. Actually, my Yoshi took a bunch of wiggling and grunting to get off, but it will slide off of the pipe.

    Feel free to ask me anything. I suggest changing your account settings so you can receive private messages.

    BTW, your bike looks great.

    Ediboy,
    I just have to ask, why do you think you need to replace the rear pads at all? I had a 2012, just about like yours ( black and gold - great combo!). mine had ABS - not sure of yours. I put over 100,000 kms on that bike and did not change the rear pads... and I commute regularly (plus tour, etc) , so I use the rear brake quite a lot more than maybe is typical. just wondering... plus the bike gets ridden in shitty weather, so stuff should wear more than usual...
    piling the mileage on...

    Doser, I'm sure you are correct. I was thinking to replace because I got the bike last year of July and I've been using it almost for 5 months to work but not for other errands cuz I have another one.
    It is still fine but Im just preparing when time comes... Thank you for the advise im sure you are perfectly right.

    I had my bike for 10 years and never replaced any of the pads.

    Still some wear left in them when I sold it. The bike slowed down very quickly with just engine braking.

    Top right of the screen next to your username, click on notifications and then click on inbox. You can also get there from your profile page.

    Bikemaster is like...cheap shit but not always total trash kinda like Harbor Freight. I've never used their pads, though. (and probably never will)

    Colvert, how much mileage did you put on that bike? I ask because I have tended to get about 30,000 kms out of a set of front pads... and that was what I'd consider 'hard' use: commuting, including in shitty weather, which gets grit onto the pads and can get the calipers 'sticky'; lots of sport-touring, with fairly aggressive approaches to corners requiring significant braking; and generally a couple track days per year, with extremely heavy brake loads.

    and Ediboy, my suggestion is just buy the OEM pads. they aren't that much money, and they do the job really well. you tend to get what you pay for...
