    Rear brake pad replacement

    Hi all,

    I want to replace my rear brake pad, but some fella told me that, since it's ABS, I probably can't do it myself.

    I don't believe that though, is this true?

    It might seem gullible to ask this question but I haven't wrenched on this bike at all yet, only a little bit on older bikes, but the dealerships earliest opening was in early August yet the rear pads are running on its last mm's.

    Any help or advice is more than welcome!!

    Thanks in advance!

    Maybe this video helps to decide if you're capable of doing it yourself:

    Is it required to remove the tire to swap out the brake pads.on my KTM it can be done with the rear wheel on.
