I'm out.
Geez! If you like your retracting tool, just use it already. Sorry if my post came off wrongly.

I've got a car lift and have changed so many brake pads on track-day cars, I couldn't count. I've used a tool like that only one time. I was at the track helping someone who had one. I've never seen a caliper I couldn't retraract without a retracter tool...maybe there is one but I've never come across it. I've worked on tons of BMW cars and lots of BMW, Duc and Aprilia bikes. Mostly BMW.

Thanks for the part number. Now to find someone who will sell those pads to me...probably not curvygirl. I'm pretty happy with the HH for now. Maybe I'll look into these when my HH need replacing.

All good. Didn't mean to be a jerk.
