How do I change the brakes on CRF 50

I removed the bracket that engages the brakes, but how do I get that pin out that's holding the expanding metal pieces together?

not sure exactly on your model bike but on mine the pin was secured with a cap and a small allen wrench used to unscrew it then after it comes off the thread it slides out, replace the pads, slide back in and repeat the reverse for installation.

hope this illuminates the process for you even if the process isnt the exact same, it will likely be very similar. if there is a cap it may be covered in grime/dirt so you cannot tell, or the head of the bolt may be filled in with dirt so you cannot notice it either.

Try wiping the caliper down with a rag soaked in brake cleaner to get a better look at the assembly.

If the pin is not threaded into anything you may just need to force it out with a bar small enough to force it thru its retainer.

My apologies, upon looking at the fiche for your bike, it appears that information above may not be relevant to your bike.

I couldnt find the CRF50 on RonAyers' parts fiche but i did find the XR50r which I found thru googling, may be a somewhat identical version of your dirtbike.

Here is a shortened url of the fiche for the rear-brake panel: http://tinyurl.com/8g9zy5c


we are talking about the rear brake correct? if not then you can follow that link to the front as well. if in fact, the two bikes are identical enough to relate.

Is it being held together by the bolt in "2" or "10" ?

You have to remove #5 then just pull up on them or they will fall out.

No tools are needed for just and you shouldn't have to remove anything once you have the hub in your hand

ah, #5

alright - i'll try that.

This is for the sake of weight reduction lol.

Broke my front brake lever and decided to just go with the rear hand brake.

Thanks for the help!

If you broke the lever just remove the cable and leave the hub and brakes in there. Those pads im sure weight next to nothing. Seems like more of a pain for minimal gain

So your gonna lose having front brakes because you broke a $15 lever? And want to take the brake pads (shoes) out for weight reduction?
