  1. Front End Issue

    Technical Help Forum
    Front brake on my CX500 is pretty rough looking, some oxidation and pads seems rusted in place. Definitely needs stripped down, cleaned and painted. Figured made sense to buy one of those K&L caliper rebuild kits since the rubber is looking a bit worse for wear, and since dismantling anyway...
