Rear brake issue mt07

Recommended Posts

I've just replaced my chain and sprockets, put the wheel back on and took it for a test ride and everything was fine..

 

Finished work last night and rode home, I noticed that the rear brake was applying as soon as I pressed the pedal and was squeaking when pressed, it sounded like it was binding constantly.

 

So when I got home I put the bike on a stand and checked the chain tension, wheel allignment and brake pads and caliper.

 

I couldn't see anything out of place so I checked the rear brake adjustment to get some free play but i couldn't get any free play.

 

So I took the caliper off and checked the piston but I could press it in with relative ease, I cleaned the caliper up and greased the sliders. ( background, the rear brake and disc was replaced 4 months ago due to being warped and sticky piston)

 

I've checked both pads and it seems like the inner pad (the one closest to the wheel) is the one that's rubbing. Making the disc very hot to touch. It's as if the wheel has moved over about 2mm.

 

Could anyone give me advice on what to, I'm at a lose end

 

Thanks in advance

 

Chris

Double check your wheel alignment.

Yeah I checked the wheel allignment again, it's on the same mark. I'm going to drop the wheel out later and see if any things a miss. Cheers

Spacer in the wrong place, maybe?

I'm not sure that id rely on the alignment marks at the adjustemnt end of the arm. When I last had the rear out on the fazer, I set it to the marks equally, then checked with straight edges down the bike to the front wheel, and was astonished to find what I thought was a significant misalignment. I set it using the straight edges

 Unless you have measured the wheel centres to check its true or as nsd used (i measure from the rim to the arm on mine, easy as the arm is equal) or any other proper physical check not envolving those stupid marks on the arm your wheel is off.

The caliper mount will pull square to the sw arm and the wheel is off, therefore the disc is off. Only by mm probably, causing the pad wear.

The chat rooms are busy with rear spindle issues and chain alignment too on the 07.

It needs checking properly.
