So yesterday the rain finally stopped here in DFW and I attempted to ride. Sadly it seems one of the rear pads broke and seized the rear. I’ll be replacing the rotor as it was getting sketchy anyway. It’s shiny new groove isn’t cool. Any things not real intuitive about replacing the rear rotor on a VStar 950T? I have new front pads already, so might as well do those too.

I've done brake jobs of dozens of 4 wheeled type vehicles but never a motor.
It can't be too difficult....everything is right there! :cool:

I did mine last year. Organic pads on the front and ceramic on the rear. What I didn't like is I rebuilt the rear master cylinder but did not have a hone small enough for the bore of the cylinder. I have done dozens of brake jobs and I like to always hone them to raise some metal and brake the glaze.
