Hi, I have a '99 Yam XJ600N twin disc model. Having a rattle which sounded like a loose brake pad coming from the front caliper i took it off to find that an anti-rattle shim is missing. Brakes still function fine but it needs sorting out. Having looked round the web i can't find anyone selling them. Is it worth contacting a dealer? (dont want to pay through the nose though). Help please. Matt
It seems riding schools are keen to teach us new guys how to STOP, as the assumption is we will manage OK to get going. I just traded up from a 250 Virago to a new XVS650. I was surprised to find how less effective the rear brake is on the new bike. Is this usual. Is there any thing I can do to improve braking???or any suggestions about my operating? When not an emergency, (say approaching lights), I tend to slow down by using foot brake and changing down. usually only use front brakes when a more urgent situation requiring a strong STOP is necessary. New to this so any suggestions appreciated. Thanks Rossr
