Its come time to replace my front pads. The outside pad is down to the metal. The inside pad still has the groove down the middle. Obviously wearing unevenly, assuming the PO replaced both at the same time.



Cycle Parts Nation fiche http://www.cyclepartsnation.com/pages/parts/viewbybrand/7/Honda.aspx gives 3 Part numbers: 45105-415-006 45105-415-772 and 45105-415-770. What are the differences in these parts?



Honda (via Cycle Parts Nation) says they are unavailable for the CX models and thus, I suspect, they may also be unavailable here in Thailand from my Honda Parts Vendors.



Were these Pads used on any other Honda (or other Motorcycle) Models that I might find here?



I have done a Google search for the part number stamped on the pad itself and come up empty, it is NISSIN UBUP35FF.



I really need to find them tomorrow, today your time and any suggestion would be much appreciated.



Thanks from Thailand

AFAIK they are all the same for single piston callipers.Dual pistons are different.

Also used on CB400n Super-dreams.



PS

I have a set of the old CB900 Brake calipers on my Bitsa CX and they are the same brake pads.


Thanks Shep,



I can almost count on you for the first reply with Europe already awake!!!!



I did a bit more searching and also came up with the CB900, CB400's are somewhat common here so that is also a good option and I found a reference to the GL1100 Rear Brake pad, though that is a real long shot here in Thailand.



I'll check in with a big(er) bike shop near me in the morning, if they don't have something I'll be riding (very carefully into town to the main Honda Shop (and hope its not flooding again)!!!!



Thanks again,

Quick trip to Chiang Mai and the main Honda dealer came up empty.



Checked at another bike repair shop and they directed me to a brake shop that turns rotors and MAKES pads. So, two hours later I now have new pads but of unknown composition.



Upon getting on the road again the brakes are soft and not nearly as firm at the handle and definitely not stopping me as the old brakes were.



Thinking I should bleed the brakes and get everything proper I pulled out the drivers and tried to get the top of the master cylinder off. Got one screw out bit the other is stuck as hell, even after applying a bit of penetrating oil to loosen things up (frankly I don't want to use much as I am not sure of the effect of the seal).



At the moment, I've tied the handle back thinking that if there were air in the line that is going to help.



Any thoughts on getting the Screw, and, how long should it take to get the new pads to seat? I did not have the rotors ground.



Oh, the cost for the two pads, about USD$5.25 and two hours for them to be made.



Thanks.....

Shep,



Thanks for that link, I just wish right now I could get that danged top of the master cylinder off to get it topped up, at least make sure it was. While the pads were out the brake level was pumped a few times and the brake cylinder extended almost to the end. It got pressed back in. I would have thought that having filled the reservoir while the pads were worn that with new pads and the cylinder now pressing further in that the reservoir would be even fuller.



Went for a quick ride after the brake handle was tied back for 5 hours and it did feel a bit better while I went to get some cigs and cheap booze for the night. Tied back again and will see how it feels in the morning and report.



1:56am and listening to some get blues. About time to sleep....



Thanks again for the link.....if I can't get that top off, and things don't tighten up I may need to think about other remedies.



Thanks and PM to be sent......
