Brembo single pin retainer

Changed front pads to EBC HH a couple of weeks ago and realised a previous owner or "mechanic" didn't re-install the single pin retainers. Apart from stopping the pads rattling do they serve any other purpose?

Cheers.

Well, from experience i can say they do stop the pads falling out whilst driving IF installed PROPERLY!!!

This happend to me on a tour in 2015, the rear pads dropped out whilst moving, made a hell of a racket. And wrecked the caliper in the process. Luckily, Ducati Bielefeld were not too far away and they had a used caliper with pads lurking on a shelf. 75 euros later it was fitted and we were all back on our way. At this point the tech checked the front pads too. They also were not fitted properly - the pin wasnt driven in deeply enough that the sprong collar was holding properly.

Moral of the story, when you buy an new used bike, check the P.O. new how to fit CRUCIAL parts like brake pads properly.

Are you talking about the pad pin, or the anti-rattle clips? The anti-rattle clips are not necessary (I don't use them on my track bike's brakes), but the pad retainer pin is absolutely necessary (if you want to have brakes), and has a small "e-clip" or "hair pin" clip that keeps the pin from falling out.

Yeah, the retaining clip/spring (for a single pin caliper) or as you say the anti-rattle clip. Have sourced a couple already at $10. each 'cos I hate rattling noises.
BTW the pins on mine don't have a "hair pin" clip, instead the pin has a collar even though the manual shows different. Slight changes btwn years?

Cheers.

In the old days the brake pads had springs attached to them. Those pads are no longer available, and you need to source the springs separately for use with current pads. Could be that the previous owner of your bike changed out old pads to the newer style and didn't add the springs.

What year is your bike? I recall my old ones had both the compression fitting and a hole for a hairpin, but didn't actually have a hairpin installed - I assume the PO made a mistake.


Looks like the replacements do have both the hairpin style clip as well as the compression fitting.

That item is not a "retaining" clip since it does not retain anything. It's supposed to keep the pads from rattling, but my pads make no rattling noises without them installed.

What keeps your pad pin from falling out? It must have some sort of clip. That collar may actually be an "e-clip." Rotate it and see if it has an opening to allow it to clip over the pad pin.

'93. Pin has the compression fitting but no hole for a hairpin. It does seem that they are like Catholic school girls; some do, and some don't!

Yeah correct, not called a clip, but a retaining plate. This part: https://ducati-gowanloch.com/shop/br...-pin-retainer/

Mine completely fell out on the road taking pads, springs and I don't know what all used to be in there. Tried a later model single pin from my friends bike but it was too large in diameter. I have the early 900SS BLACK calipers, any more advice here? I suspect what I ordered from the internet will work but that is two weeks delivery. Can I use a bent nail?

the black calipers on my 851 have m6 bolts with nylock nuts on the inner side of the caliper.
