    What happens with performance and risk level when the rear tire is
    installed backward and has been ridden that way for over a year? Should the
    tire be install the assess way? Or should it be left lonely? Or is it no
    longer usable and buy a new tire? Thank you for this video.

    Very cool and unadorned. All my bikes were release front disc brake and now I
    know what to do with my Ducati Hyperstrada.

    I’m new to racing bikes and I ve got a question on the bit where you say
    it’s surpass to push the brake pads back for more space
    Previous to you push them back, you probally have removed the brake tank
    cover I guess or did you leave the tank closed
    maybe dumb question, but I’ve been told if you leave the tank closed
    you can hurt the brake cilinder due to pressure

    It’s Allu min ium for crying out loud! Pronounce your I.Rotors? It’s a
    brake disk and we Britts invented those so why change what it’s called?
    It’s a disk and it’s part of a system called the brakes hence the name!
    Spacers on refitting? Le-ver lol. It’s lee-ver phonetically pronounced. A
    real man leaves the bike on ground level and gets his knees dirty. After
    any work on the brakes you need to get into the habit of checking the brake
    master cylinder fluid level.. that’s le-vel not lee-vel. You guys crack me
    up.

    For the actual torque settings, you will need to consult the Yamaha Factory
    Benefit Manual.

    do you really need to take out the caliper bracket? cant u just slide the
    wheel down with them in place, you’re not removing the forks after all

    Yes, if you have older or heavier calipers, or if they are going to be
    un-attached for an extended amount of time, you can support them. But
    bestow calipers are really light compared to calipers of yesterday (unless
    you have the new Brembo mono-blocks, those guys are stout!)

    How vital is the torque on tightening the bolts, do you know the specs
    on how tight to tighten them on a 03 R1?

    @Testingpointer1 Either you’re brake pads are worn way down, or you need to
    sterile the cyldinders in your caliper. Dust from your brake pads builds up
    on them and prevents them from retracting fully into the caliper.
