- Inspect the rotor braking surfaces for scoring and machine as necessary.
- Using Rear Caliper Piston Adjuster 206-026 or equivalent, rotate the piston clockwise until it is fully seated. Make sure one of the slots in the piston face is positioned so it will engage the nib on the brake pad.
- Install the brake pads in the support bracket. Place the caliper assembly over the rotor into position on the support bracket. Make sure the brake pads are installed correctly.
- Install and torque the disc brake caliper locating pin to 25 ft. lbs. (33 Nm).
