First remove the small allen set screw #2 in the diagram. Remove the two 1/2" bolts that hold the caliper on. Take the lid off the master cylinder to allow room for expansion of the fluid when you use a C clamp to compress the caliper piston. Work the old pads off the pins and install the new ones. Put the calipers back on and squeeze the lever till the pads engage the discs. Install the set screws with a drop of blue loctite and tighten till it just seats then back it off 1/2 turn. Use a rolled up paper towel to absorb any excess fluid out of the reservoir if needed. If no fluid has been added previously the fluid level should be spot on with new pads and no adding or subtracting should be needed. Put the MC lid back on and go riding. The whole process shouldn't take more than about 30 to 45 minutes.
