Hi guys I've decided to change the front pads on my 2013 LC 1200 GS myself.
Ive got the new pads, copper grease, and it looks easy to fix.

Any body know the recommended torque settings for the re fitting.

or any good how to videos..

look forward to your replies.

Torque values for the front caliper mount is 38 Nm

Front pads are easy to change, but I'm curious as to why you feel the need? The front pads on my '05 were less than 1/2 worn at 78K miles when I sold the bike. At 18K miles the front pads on my '13 looked new.



Edit: you don't need to remove the caliper to change pads...

* remove split pin, threaded pin, and spring.
* remove pads -- they slide out
* push pistons into caliper a slight way to make room for new pads
* install new pads
* I install spring, threaded pin, and split pin
* pump brakes a few times to make sure the new pads are making contact with the disk

Bed in the new pads.
