    Rear brake caliper removal

    Hi, I'm wanting to remove the rear caliper for cleaning and I'm not sure how to..I can see how its mounted to the back plate but theres no obvious bolt heads to undo.

    Surely I dont need to remove the wheel and axle bolt!

    I'm sure I'm being a bit daft but would appreciate some help. 🙃

    Hi. I remember that I saw some videos on YouTube about that. Not for 950, but for 1200S or 1260, pretty much the same If you ask me.

    I didnt remove it today. Just took out the pads and cleaned where I could. It wasnt that bad in the end.

    Yep the caliper is held on by the axle bolt and a sliding guide so it moves when you adjust the chain.
    Anything more than two wheels is unnecessary.
