Well I guess it's time for rear brake replacement on the Rhino (640 miles). Got the dreaded Grinding (Like the whole back end is coming out affraid ) funny it only happens when I'm just about at a complete stop though, not at medium or high speed braking. Anyway before I tear into this thing, I thought I would ask you guys for any info that would be helpful. such as what pads, anything I should do with the rotor while i'm in there, ETC.... Any info is appreciated study .......Thanks, Yank

Well, I really like the EBC Severe Duty pads on mine. I also had a set on my Grizzly for over 900 miles. No issues. When I replaced mine, I found that my caliper was stuck. I had to completely remove the caliper and use some "forced persuasion" and a few "choice words" to fee it up. Other than that, it was no big deal. It's a good idea to drop the rear most skid, just for more access.

Make sure that you don't try to force the piston back into the caliper. Use a twisting motion in case the threaded piece inside the caliper is completely extended. I tried to force mine in with a C clamp, like I always did with my race bikes, and messed up the threaded piece attached to the piston. I am still trying to get it to work right. I was told that you cannot buy the parts on the inside of the caliper.

OK, I got the pads off. The one pad has about 1/8 inch of pad left, and the other pad is completely gone ( source of my awful noise). See pic's. Is that normal, and if not do you have any ideas why it is like that?

That's just how mine looked, except I had a little more wear on the "good" pad.

I'm sure these calipers are the floating design, if so there are pins or bolts with sleeves that the caliper moves back and forth (float's) on. If these become seized from mud,sand or just lack of lubrication they will seize in a fixed position and severely wear one side of the pads verses the other. They should move freely

told you guys I hate the mud Razz
