    It will still work without the retainer i think it is there to stop the aluminium mounting bracket from getting worn by the end of the pads it doesn't actually hold them in place. any honda dealer should be able to get it, cost about £8 here

    I'm hoping it's a retainer issue as that seems very easy to fix, can't really figure what else it could be.

    Summer is rapidly getting closer and this bike needs to see the open road soon!

    Alright, so I went and did some more work on the bike today, and I can't see it being anything else than being the shim and retainer missing from the assembly which is causing this issue?

    Either that caliper isnt pushed pushed down all the way to its correct location or you have the wrong brake pads for that caliper what year is year bike and is that the Nisin caliper you can see from my photo the pads stick out past the caliper unlike yours




    The caliper on mine looks allot closer to the mounting bracket than yours which is what makes me think yours is not all the way down could just be the angle of the video though

    Fred you are a godsend!

    In my (terrible) video the caliper wasn't completely bolted down, however the issue remains when it is.

    Looking at your pictures it's clear to me that I have received the wrong brake pads. Mine are way too short compared to yours and no shim or retainer clip will fix that. Quick fix!
