Was going to a brake job this morning, but ran into a wierd issue. I know our Vrods have a mix on metric and SAE bolts, but what size head are the pins that hold in the brake pads on a 2005 Vrod? The main bolts are 10mm, but I cannot find a socket to fit the smaller pins. it looks around 6mm. I dont want to get out the hammer yet...
Has anyone run into a similar issue when pulling pads? Thanks.

Thanks, I'll try the 5mm again. I think only the 2006 and later had the Brembo brakes. Pre 2006 had the standards. Not sure if that changes pin sizes.

Well I broke down and read the manual..it is a 1/4" 12 point head. That makes sense right? Put 4 10 MM bolts on the caliper and then throw in a few 1/4" ones for good measure. It had to be the same engineer who designed the fuel gauge. :banghead:
