Popular Post Aaron Posted August 8, 2021 Popular Post Share Posted August 8, 2021 My pads were at the end of their life, so I decided to upgrade to Ferodo DS1.11 and Motul RBF600. Also got some new nipples for the calipers as the current ones were looking pretty tired. I did the rears in 2 hours, doing a thorough clean up and bleed at a leisurely pace. I was going to call it a day and do the fronts another time, alas, I chose to make a start. What a terrible decision that was. I drowned it in penetrating fluid, tried to hammer it free, twist it free with grips... I tried all of the tricks in the book. In the end it just took sheer bruce force. I chewed through all of my punches, bought three new ones, chewed through one of those... but I finally got the bastard out! I have decided to celebrate by having a break and leaving everything as is. I've ordered new pins which will take a day or two to get here, then I have to do the other side. Pray for me. Note for anyone that picks up DS1.11 pads: they do not come with dampeners on the pad nor separately. They were quiet on the test drive though, albeit dusty (as expected). I will fit dampener shims if the noise is excessive but my experience thus far has been that they aren't required. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
