    It is, but every time I try something I find an issue, then have to order what needs sorting.


    New disk arrived, looks the nuts and fits, thank god.





    So bolted on ok and the caliper bolts at too long,hit the bobbins, but donít think they will hit the pads this time, there M8 40mm, just been to B&Q to get some 35mm, they only had 30mm. Got the 30ís so I can do a rough bolt up and Iíve got 35mm arriving tomorrow or Thursday.

    Next issue

    If your looking head on at the bike the wheel is slightly over to the left, itís about 50mm from the left fork and 100mm odd from the right, just waiting for talon to get back to me about what spacer to use, itís currently 26mm spacer.
    My father in law has the means to make a spacer I believe depending on what talon say.

    calliper is out now, a smaller spacer i think will bring the wheel over to the right and then the disc will sit in the centre of it, the Father in Law is coming over to have a look.

    so we trimmed down the spacer (when i say we i mean the father in law) so everything is in line, maybe 1mm out but brakes are straight. wheel spins freely but has some resistance but been told this is because everything needs to settle down as its new.

    tomorrow we will bleed the front and rear brake (after fitting the rear brake light switch)

    then all it needs is the plastics fitting, an oil change and chain fitting.

    he said i should sell it and get one thats ready.
