How to Repair Motorcycle Brakes : How to Remove a Motorcycle Swing Arm

On behalf of Expert Village my name is Seth
Williams I work D-K service and I’m here to tell you about simple street bike brake repair
and inspection. Once you have your nut and your cotter pin off the swing arm will come
out either way as you can see it’s just slided out sometimes they will get caught sometimes
you need a hammer and a punch. Sometimes you need a pair of pliers or something these are
greased so make sure that they don’t touch the ground otherwise you’ll get foreign objects
in them and will hinder your barrings. After that you can see the wheel canners come around
here undue your drive chain from the sprocket, and those just come off. Usually with fair
ease mind your spacers and all that, what am I getting stuck on here, there we go. And
the rear wheel is free like I said watch your spacers make sure those go back on the proper
sides, with the street bikes you have cush drive make sure that’s out gives you a relative
ease at getting to your bike components. Once that’s done the caliper swings free as you
can see it just kinds of hangs there make sure you don’t press into your brake pedal
it will pressurize the system, you’ll have to depressurize it to get your brake router
back in.

    A good mechanic never has to force anything. Also, do not let the caliper hang by the hose and swing into the jackstand. Pull the drive parts out before you turn the wheel over. This is why I do my own maintenance.

    "Expert" is used by Americans to mean "has done this before at least once". Idiots.
