It is obvious if it does. If the bike is that old and well ridden you will notice a very big improvement. Better than when you got the bike. Don't drop junk into the reservoir when removing the top cover. Cover the gas tank and fender with towels and rags. Drain or flush well all the old brake fluid from the brake lines. Keep brake pads off till after installing the tyre. Avoid contamination or damage to the new pads splaying them open to install the tyre. Some people de-glaze the rotor with fine steel wool and brake spray cleaner. Use anti-vibration grease on the back of the pads so they don't squeal. Final torque the front calipers while some brake is applied. This might save a front wobble when braking.Thanks. I will check out a video or two.
I don't think my 06 has abs
When your done, do the back. The back brake get hot faaast if it drags. I use the back brake a lot to control the bike in the turns. Once the rear tyre is off, remove the final drive. Clean and lube the splines. Very fine steel wool/clean the rim and treat with modern stuff. It depends on how dirty your rim is. Your choice.
All this is fun and ezzy day project. 3 to 400$ at the shop.
