Hey Bert I really enjoyed the Video re the front brake pad change and I actually learnt some stuff.
You are a natural man, much appreciated.
Thanks.

Thanks bert.. I could have used this 2 weeks ago when I had to replace mine (Glad I got the FM)

anways, NO LOCTITE on brakes, If anything should be used, it's antiseize compount and brake lubricant (availalble from HD) Grease those floating pins Very well.. You'll want them to slide like butta.

NOT RED Then as Indyredneck sais it will lock and nead heat. Blue comes of with hand tools and so long as we remember to remove the old stuff before re- aplying gives no problems.
Its suitable for all those little bolts on the handlebar switchgear and even external carb screws.
Copperslip( or similer) on the back of pad retainers/and back of the pads. and the sliding pins as others have said.
Thanks for posting the Vid.
