    While installing a new rear tire, The spring fell off the caliper, so I removed the caliper and installed the tire, now I can not figure out how the spring goes back into the caliper and the parts blow up diagram is not much help can anyone advise me on this? maybe a better picture of the spring placement.

    Are you talking about the pad retainer spring?

    Sorry, 2014 Stelvio NTX1200
    It's a Brembo caliper and I think I figured it out, I remembered replacing pads on a BMW I owned with the same type of Brembo caliper. I installed it in the back of the mouth of the caliper and it puts pressure on the back of the pads, correct me if I'm wrong.

    That is correct. I thought we'd lost you:cool::cool:
    Its exactly the same as my old R1200RT, only with the Guzzi, I can always get the retaining pin out, yet with the BMW, it was always stuck...strange things

    Thanks, Brian, Yes I remember on my RT I would tap out the pin with a drift while the caliper was still attached as it made the job easier.
