Brake pad springs

Bit of a boring one this guys, is it a good idea to renew these inside the brake caliper, currently got it on my desk giving it a once over:

P1100293.JPG

The one on the left is the pad plate where the pads butt up against. The right is the pad spring that they sit on. And any idea where I could find some? Or just leave them, they'll be fine.

Also abit off topic, for the guys who have Renthal fatbars and different clamps, where did you get them from?

Cheers guys :)

Hi mate, I cleaned mine up and reused them, not had any probs at all. I expect I will replace mine at some point as they eventually corrode and weaken, expect I'll order mine from the local dealer when the time comes.

Don't know about the fat bars unfortunatly as I don't have any (yet)

Yup Robin from a DTX. Yeah i'll see if i can speak to me dealer at some point tomorrow, find out if they stock them and how much.

Benb they actually checked inside the caliper for the spring? Or are they more visible on other DT brakes? When i had my MOT he just said to me the pads were abit low but ok.

Yes bud I will let you know.

Well, I called into my dealer on the way home and he said that they are not really classed as spares and therefore can't be ordered through them, abit of a bummer.

After saying that tho, Seiki where did you get your replacments from?

lol ah benb you've picked up some too, good going mate. I don't have a breakers near me unfortunately.

Well from what he said to me at the dealer, the pad plate stops the pads from rubbing on the caliper, and if that's still in good condition don't worry too much about it. The pad spring stops the pads from rattling about, as long as it's still feeling strong it should be ok.

Brembo make the caliper but Yamaha have to stock it as it's supplied by them for the DTX. Where the hell does he suggest?!!

I'll call my parts guy tomorrow and ask part numbers
