Can anyone tell me what the secret is of getting the caliper with new brake pads back on the rotor? I decided to save some of my SS check and replace the rear pads on the 2001 1150GS with non-integral ABS brakes. I took the caliper off, took the old pads out, cleaned the insides of the caliper, put anti-seize lube where needed, compressed the pistons nearly all the way in, put the new pads on, opened the caliper as far as I could, and attempted numerous times to get the caliper over the rotor to no avail. It seems that the space between the pads is smaller than the width of the rotor. I looked up every thing I could find on the Internet and viewed Jim Von Baden's video where he does a brake bleed and in the process takes off and replaces the brakes. I also called the dealer to verify that they gave me the correct OEM pads. Thanks in advance for any responses.
