i was changing different company brake pads, so it's recommended that you sand or resurface your rotors to get that old brake pad residue off. also, my calipers were filthy and i wanted to get all that brake dust and dirt out of the pistons. I'm just extremely OCD when it comes to the bike

Re: How to: install brake pads

If you're just doing pads and not resurfacing/sanding your rotors you can skip steps 4-7 and 11. There really are only two bolts that hold the calipers to the forks and the cotter pins, it's really simple if you take a look at your calipers. Here's a shot of the calipers the two hex bolt safety wired to each other top/bottom are the caliper bolts.

Ditto, I swapped mine out at 10k or so and they had a ton of life left. I think race pads or similar will have a bit shorter life span in exchange for performance. But then again, even on the track I never mash my brakes hard enough to endo or lock up the rear. Your mileage might vary in my opinion depending on how hard you are on the brakes.
