Thanks for the tip bud.I place a small pocketbike tire under the rear tire, almost the perfect height to align the rearwheel, brake caliper and put the axle back in the wheel.
I also use the small tire when removing the wheel, so you don't have to hold the wheel all the time, just pull the axle and the wheel will rest on the small tire, than you can easilly remove the caliper and the chain
read the manual i refuse to read the manual it's just a book of information for silly people who know how to read. Much rather skin my knuckles and swear......
Gee i did read the manual once , it taught me how to ride my first bike after i told the dealer to deliver it to my home coz i didn't know how to ride......... maybe i will read the manual after all
Everything said makes sense only other input i can add is that i push the pads as far back in the caliper as i can(compress the piston)that gives a little more room to maneuver the disc into the caliper.What a faff removing rhe rear wheel yesterday. Changed tyres and the most difficult thing was removing the rear wheel over the brake caliper.
Any tips from you maintenance gurus??
Look in your handbook that came with the bike.I'm not too familiar with these newfangled rear brake calipers. I'm used to torque arms. How does one remove the caliper? is it the hex bolt at the front and the bolt under the rubber boot? Does anyone know the torque specs? Thanks
