I've been a motorcycle mechanic all my life and work on cars but how do I get the pins out of the calipers to re-install new brake pads?
2004 Polaris Sportsman 500
any one done this job? I see removal of a nut on the top and a rubber groumet to keep dirt out of bottom, these are the slider pins that hold pads in nplace
Thanks much for the help

pins

i think they are close to the same as my 96, and it wasnt easy, i cut out the pads then heated pins slightly and pulled them out, the new pads came with new pins which i antisiezed very well in case i have to do this again. good luck

well I answered my own question it was so simple I have to post it so all will know,
you don't remove the slider pins at all you just take a c-clamp and push the cup back into the caliper slowly pushing against the existing brake pads and opposite side of caliper the grab the whole plate that pins are attached to and push it back toward caliper this will give enough room to remove the pads,
wow way to easy I wish cars were this easy also!
