Hi all. Note!!!!

Break pads. Inspect them.
Had a set and run them to long. SO they go to thin, but not yet metal on metal.
We have floating disc's and cause the size or the ABS or what ever the brakes dont grip equal blad bla bla vbla...
Short story , found the brae disc loose, just a tad not causing problems.

So dont let it happen and make serious expensive problems.

Removed the wheel. Removed the discs, Punced them with some TLC and a PIn and Hammer.
All nice and tight again.

My front disks also started making a noise (floating too much persay). They rattled while riding. Send them to an engineering firm that had the tools to "recrimp" the disks onto their brackets. 100% again :thumleft:

Have you got a link? And how much did they set you back (just front or front and back?)?

Much appreciated BiganDaft!

Gonna have to ask my brother if he feels generous (he moved to the UK recently) because the current exchange rate is just crazy!

I just did the Hyperpro kit on mine, front and back. My rear was feeling rather soggy whcih is why I also wanted the rear done and it made quite the difference.

Really want a Scram for a second bike... one day!
