2012 990R - How to change front brake pads

I have a mx CD that goes through 2011 and thought surely the 2011 990/R would be the same as the 2012 esp. since the new one will be out but NOOOO. I want to change out the front brake pads. DVD shows 2 pins, bike only has one which is out but pins won't budge. I looked in the end and it does look like there may be a circlip but not for sure. Not easy to get into if there is. The owners manual only has a section of checking the "linings" as they say and add the KTM shop would be happy to change them for you.

So, any one with 2012 year specific knowledge?

I'll check with the dealer but this is BS.

Thanks all

The parts fiche shows the same part for the 2011 and 2012 990 R.

Once the earlier ones once the spring pins were removed the pin holding the pads in had to knocked out as they have another internal retainer like the one shown in the picture above. It appears the current models are the same.

Only a little force was needed - IIRC I once did it with a small screw driver and a pair of pliers.
