I have been meaning to replace the breakpads on my Honda XR125L. I've done it before on my VW Jetta.
The thing I'm confused about is whether or not I have to open up the lid of the brake fluid container. I've seen guides online that do, and guides that don't.
The way I see it, if you open up the container for the brake fluid you can more easily push in the piston of the brake clamp? If you don't it will be harder.
On the other hand, I'm not sure if it's a good idea to do so.
And in the end, will I be able to push in the piston by hand? I recall having a really tough time doing it with my car given that I don't have the clamps that do it for you.
