Changing rear pads....
I have a Haynes manual...but how difficult to change the rear pads?

Any advice or hints appreciated.

Thanks.

It's not bad at all.
Remove LH saddle bag.
The only advice I would give would be is be sure to lube the caliper slide bushings after you clean them up and when you push the piston back in the caliper, open the bleeder screw and squirt out the fluid in the caliper instead of pushing the fluid back up into the master cylinder. Then after the caliper is mounted back in place check fluid level in master cylinder before you pump up the brakes. This way you don't run it dry and your not pushing any junk up into your master cylinder.
Then bleed the caliper a couple times just to be sure you didn't leave any air in it. hold brake lever down and open bleeder screw. when fluid stops squirting out close screw immediately.
