my clymers is not very clear as to if i need to unbolt the rear caliper off the swingarm or if i need only remove the pad retaining pin. could it be as easy as just removing the pin and spring thereby freeing the pad out of the caliper? ive owned other bikes that allowed for this. the bike in question is an 06 1000. thanx for any suggestions.
