Hi there
I just bought a 03 WR450. When inspecting the rear brake I found the twisted remains of a metal clip on the front of the brake. This was obviously to hold the pads in place, but the parts diagram only shows a clip on the back ( which is there). Is there such a clip on the front to hold the pads in place?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

The thin metal clips only come with oem pads. They are anti-vibration spring clips. Sounds like a ham fisted wrench was messing with the brakes. Not a big deal not to have them, but it does ensure the pads fit snug.
