Default victory vegas rear brake pads

Got some ordered but a search here and on utube produced nothing.

I'm sure I can do it without video but I would feel better if someone could link me or point me to a source.

i replaced mine last year dill. that video will help but its not specific to your model.

the pins do not screw out as shown in the video.

you have to look close in between the caliper and the outside brake pad to find a cotter pin. pull out the cotter pin and then knock out the pin that is being shown unscrewed in the video.

it is knocked out towards the rear tire. its a bugger to get the hole lined up to insert the cotter pin back in when you get through.

the front pin pulls out towards you and is hels in with a cotter pin also.

Thanks lorider! Seems something that should be simple always has a catch. I already make things harder than they have to be!

Don't pull the pin all the way out-only enough to replace one pad at a time. Then push the drift pin in to hold the first pad and replace the second pad. If you remove both pads at the same time the little retainer clip falls out and it's a bitch to get back in without pulling the caliper off.

These are from a German company and overall I see favorable reviews. I'm very easy on brakes and I've not even looked at the rear pads. The guy that changed my tire said it was time.

I will say that the vegas braking system has been one of the best of any bikes I've owned.

Oh! I may be flipping my fender back. I'm tired of everyone I pass pointing at my backward fender. LOL!

Yeah Victory put lots of R+D into our braking systems, as did they everything else.
That book I just read a second time and returned to it's owner at Burleigh Bars went into some detail on the design features of the Brembo sourced brake system and how it was tailored to Victorys needs.
Take the rear brake, once past its initial 'bite' the linkage system is designed to reduce the rate of application in propertion to how hard the rear levers being stomped on in an effort to reduce the chance of lockup (no ABS in 1998)...Wheras at the front the opposite occurs the harder you squeeze that lever the harder them brakes actually work.
oh yeah Ill be going to Lyndalls on the front too fairly soon.
