If you just tighten up the rear brake adjustment nut all the way to engage the brakes before you tighten all the axle hardware, the brakes should be centered. Then tighten up the axle and other bolts, and loosen the adjustment nut to get to proper adjustment. If you don't do this you'll probably notice weak braking since they're generally not centered. Thanks to Bare (I think) for the tip of tightening up the adjuster rather than holding the brake pedal down, that way you don't need three hands.Scott
has anyone seen this? your thoughts?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHRm_t_8DYE
This mod tells you how to centre the brake plate. If you know what you are talking about then you will clearly see that no problem can possibly occur.. After many thousands of miles my brake still works well...I say again, if you are not a competant mechanic, then dont do this mod yourself because how can you be sure you have reassembled the brake correctly.
If we removed accidents waiting to happen (and those that already have) from YouTube, what would be left?
