I've never seen anything like this before. Simple , yet a little scary looking.

Very cool, but that little spring doesn't long enough. Has that bike run an endurance race?

Ducati used that system in the 70's during their enduranceraces.
The washer fits over the bleednipple so the spring just holds it in place.
Pull of the washer, pull out the u-pin, pull out the pads, then they used some sort of wedge to push both pistons back at the same time.
Wouldn't want to try this on a bumpy road though.

Hello to all boys, I wonder, I could end up a pair of brake pads in a race? Secure had disc brakes in cast iron, and the brake pads are asbestos, very soft, but I did not think you were able to finish a couple of new brake pads.

EBC did have some very soft pads that didn't last three races for me.
Fitted with the Michelin S41 and M45 in PV# grade, even the 70's and 80's Ducati's had to change tires (wheels hence the quick-change wheel-setup) and with that changed discs. Too avoid a longer run in, they also changed the pads.
