Help! Front Brake Pad Support Spring
Posted August 23, 2003 - 08:46 PM
I've been installing an EBC oversized front rotor on my wr426. In the process I lost the small leaf spring that sits on the top side of the brake pads. Yamaha refers to the bottom leaf spring as a "pad support". Problem is that the top "pad support" is not listed anywhere in the assembly drawing of the front brake caliper. Mechanics at my local shop had no clue yet one can clearly see this part on every WR or YZ when you look at where the top of the brake pads sit in the caliper mounting bracket. Does anyone know how neccessary this component is and if it is included with a new set of brake pads or with a new caliper?
Thanks for the help.

I would recommend replacement to prevent unecessary wear to the brake caliper.

If I'm wrong, please someone let me know and give me the part number for it.
