Default Brakes for KP

I need to change out the rear brakes. I've heard they're easy enough but has anyone run into any kinks or think there is something I should know?

Do you have the service manual?
The rear is easy, but not as easy as the front... at least on my KP.

I just did a friend's Kingpin brakes front and rear. The front is a walk in the park, but the rear, although not complicated, has a couple things you need to know. After pulling the two R clips with a needle nose pliers, you'll need to drive out the two pins with a punch that will fit into the pin hole. Drive them toward the wheel, making sure a wheel spoke is not in the way. The first 1/2" will be tight, then it works free enough to pull it out.

After the pins are removed, GENTLY lift off the spring clip, being careful not to bend it. Note its position and commit that to memory. Next, with the old pads still in place, pry against the closest one to compress the pistons into the caliper, then remove both pads. They pull out upward.

Slip the new pads in making certain the lower tab is solidly hooked by pushing down on the upper tab. You should get a firm but springy feel. Replace the spring clip and the pins. They go in from the back to the front, plain end first. To seat the pins, you'll need a long metal shaft to hammer them into place. They need to be in far enough so the R clips can be inserted into their holes. Then keep pumping the lever until its firm. Done!

are y'all doing this with the caliper still on the rotor? i've done several suzuki's that could be done like that but its usually more pain than its worth. so i just put the bike on a lift and pulled 2 bolts out of the suspension so the axle could fall past the exhaust and pulled the axle half out so the "brake bar" could drop with the caliper. after that it was pretty straight forward. i put ebc HH pads in and does seem to stop really good now even though they aren't even broke in yet.

+1 for HH pads, especially EBCs. The rear pads on Kingpins can be changed out with the caliper in place and you laying on the floor.
