Hi,

You want pads like these:

Fitting is easy, the only tricky bit - if you've not done it before - pushing the pistons back in the calipers to make room for the new pads.

Re: 1000 clx

best way ive found to push the pistons in the calipers back is a good g clamp, can be found in b&q and other good diy & hardware stores Oh and watch out if someones decided to top the fluid up while the pads have been down it'll make a bid for freedom resulting in a mess.
