Replacing Rear Brake Pads

Has anyone replaced the rear brake pads? I replaced mine today and now the pedal goes all the way down. There is a little clip that looks like a retaining clip for the pad that is against the caliper. I bed the brakes and that made no difference. When I took the rear caliper off I was able to get the pads to close. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?

This is all the manual says.

Rear Brake Pad Installation
•Push the caliper piston in by hand as far as it will go.
•Install the anti-rattle spring in its correct position.
•Install the pad on the piston side first, then install the other pad on the holder.
•Install the rear caliper (see Caliper Installation).

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

Fix it! The retaining clip wasn't holding the pad correctly and it was stuck. I repositioned the clip and all is fine now. I might pickup a couple extra clips but they are mor ethan $6 a piece.

Thank You

Just want to give a quick thank you to this forum for the great DIY tips and service manual we have here. Really made changing the front and rear pads on my bike a breeze. Took less than an hour following everything I read here. Great forum!
