Front Brakes - Cant get the Pads out. Help
Hey guys, 6 months ago I picked up a 2000 vstar 650, great bike, I'm trying to change the front brake pads (should be simple)(but isnt, lol).

I removed the two main bolts freeing the caliper, There is only one bolt that is accessible to loosen the tension on the caliper (I have fully removed), the pistons have been pushed back in fully.

The two pads fully move to the right and left uninstructed, they just wont come out. It looks like there are three brackets holding these within the brake caliper, one at each end and one behind that also acts as a track.

Can anyone give me the equation to the puzzle so I can get these things out and the new ones in so I can hit the road again?

PS The Yamaha Dealership has know idea lol.

Thanks,

Jeremy
