    Default Can anyone help with 1 front brake pad spring clip?

    I'm changing out my front brake pads and putting on Bajaron's pads and got to my very last spring clip and wouldn't you know I had it launch on me and for the life of me I cannot find it anywhere. That tends to be just my luck. Can anyone help me out with any extra front brake pads spring clip for a 2011 spider RT Limited. I would be very grateful if you can! Call the dealer and I have to buy A whole new brake pad set for the front at $119 just to get one clip! Unbelievable.
    If you can help me out please PM me and I will give you my address and would appreciate if you could drop one clip into the USPS tomorrow. I will return your p.m. as soon as possible this evening I will be in and out of the house. Thank you very much!

    these are unobtainium. I had a similar problem when one of mine broke. I ended up going to a hobby store and buying some piano wire that was close to the same thickness and bending a new one of my own. If no one comes up with a spare one. Or you can go the expensive route and buy a set of factory pads that have the clips included.

    Thanks yes I realize that and that will be my last resort unless somebody has an extra one laying around from buying the factory brakes that come with the clips. Appreciate the response and anybody else get a response

    I have never seen any anywhere for sale separate from the the factory pads from BRP. I hope you are remembering right. If you can remember where that was and post that here you will be doing us a great favor. It would be nice to replace those clips with every pad change but unless you use BRP pads you can't as of right now do that.

    Default front brake pad spring-clips

    I have a 2012 RT SE5 and have also broken one of these spring-clips and can't find even a used one any where. Any one have a spare I could buy?

    Are you replacing your pads? If you using EBC pads call them and they will send a new set free of charge. They are in Las Vegas Nv.

    Feeling like I'm a bit all thumbs on this topic.
    Generally speaking, I'd like to think myself fairly mechanically inclined but my 2010 RT SM5 has the first brake cylinders I've ever seen with the spindle up the middle with the nub that these little wire clips straddle.
    Just exactly what is the brake pad removal process that doesn't put that damn spring in peril? I brake them more often than not so I'm apparently applying some undue brute force.

    My removal tactics to date include using needle nose on the metal backplate of the pad. That lets me tug just a micron at a time on top and bottom corners of the pad (alternately) but it doesn't seem to want to evacuate the caliper very willingly. Ultimately I resort to a wee bit of lifting to distance that backplate it from the 'crater' of each cylinder hoping that'll persuade it to come out but most often, thats when one or both springs snap.

    Can someone walk me through the steps of removing shoes from a front caliper pretty please?
    Assume I've got the wheel off, the rotor out of the way and the caliper un-bolted from the bike.
    Just pretend I'm in 4th grade and break it down into thin sliced steps. Sticking to small words might even be in order.

    HUGE thanks!
