I put my wheels back on with new tyres two days back and as it was a lovely day I went for a local ride
yes, part of my cunning plan, I also have tinfoil covering my helmet.....Do you not dazzle all the UFOs with that headlight?
Mix of washing up liquid and triple wax Wash & WaxThat's a lot of suds , what do you use ?
Thanks I hadn't noticed...It’s time to clean that rear wheel, Jerry.
same for me, the rear calliper had one pad pin that I could not shift, so I bought another and this bracket. I also bought spare callipers for both wheels.Having recently scrapped a rear caliper due to salt eating enough of it away for the dust seal to start protruding I can only think that is a good idea. Much easier to inspect the pad thickness too.
Indeed, most I found were in the USA with mental postage and fees, but I found a minter in Germany which was sensible in price and postage etc but I have found a 2nd example in Britain for a good price, yet to arrive. I got a spare front in good condition for £25 all in.I found rear calipers quite thin on the ground, most advertised were overseas and the one I bought looked rough and needed a full overhaul. I won't be commuting anymore so it shouldn't be an issue now hopefully.
Yes, I did, I turned it around on the master cylinder behind the side panel, fed it through the frame between back wheel and mudguard and then held in place using the original swingarm clip and adding a wire clip from the air filter box. There seems to be plenty of clearance and all seems fine. Got the mot in 1.5 hours.Jerry, were you able to reuse the original brake line?
yes mate and here is the routeJerry, were you able to reuse the original brake line?
