Kingpin/Vegas Front and Rear Brake Pad Replacement

Kingpin/Vegas Front and Rear Brake Pad Replacement

As always, if you have any questions or need tips on doing pad replacement or simply flushing the brake fluid, please ask. We will do our best to help and/or point you in the right direction.  For all brake work, I suggest using a Vacume Bleeder. The only problem you may encounter with using the vacume bleeder is air leaking past the bleeder. If this occurs, you can use teflon tape on the bleeder valve threads. Then simply double check that you got all air out of the line by doing the manual bleed method with one or two pumps. Simple stuff. Also suggest getting the Motul brake fluid.

Buy it here:

Jim, Where does one find a "pin punch"?  or will anything of the correct size suffice?

I bought mine at the local hardware store. They come in all diameter sizes. I think it costs $2.

Do it your self!

We the willing, following the unknowing are doing the impossible. We have done so much for so long with so little that we are now able to do anything with nothing

Mega ouch!  Yes, definitely do it yourself. You will always know you will treat your baby better than any service department, plus you will do it right and for cheap. If you have any questions, this is the place to ask and we can step you through the process.

You can get the pads for $70 (front and rear). Plus while you are swapping out the pads, go ahead and bleed out the brake fluid and replace with some Motul 600 fluid. It is amazing the difference and improved braking. Add in some stainless steel brake lines and you have the best brakes possible for the Kingpin.

 I recently set us up to get a club discount on some brake products at http://www.CycleBrakes.com. Just tell them you want the KingpinCruisers.net club discount when you place your order.

Here is the link to the thread on the ebc brake pads for the Kingpin.

Replaced the pads today on my KP, took less than 15 minutes.  I followed the instructions except I didn't bleed off the fluid.  Prior to pulling out the old pads I took a small plier (Channel Locks) and squeezed the pistons back.  It is easy and not messy.  Cleaned the area with brake cleaner, slipped in the new pads,plate, pins and keys and pumped the brakes a couple of times and your done.

Since it can take as little as 15 minutes, I can gather you don't have to remove the wheel to replace the break pads?  Thanks.

Ride safe,

Nope, no wheel removal. Hardest part is getting the retainer pin back in on the rear brake then lining up the hole in the pin for the cotter pin - at least it is for me, lol

However, removing your left saddle bag can make it a little easier to see and do.

Figures that this post would bome right after I did my pads.  It took me about 30 mins
to do both front and rear.  I didn't bleed either (that includes brakes and ME).
I basically did it the same as KPTEX.  Channel locks and squeeze the calipers back.
Oh by the way, I have just over 5000 miles on the bike and already had to replace the
brake pads.  I got the Lyndall Z pads, I hope that I can get more miles out of them.

Hahaha, yeah - but that takes me twice as long to remove it and put it back on than it does to change the brakes. Laying on my back all contorted and with a few choice swears seems to do the trick in a lot less time, lol.
