2003 XR80 Brake shoe replacement problem

Recommended Posts

I changed the brake shoes on my sons 2003 XR 80 yesterday. After tightening the front axle, the brakes would not release smoothly when applying the front brake. It acted like the lever that actuates the brakes was binding. If I loosened the axle nut, they worked OK. I disassembled several times to see if I could find anything wrong, but everything looked OK. To resolve the problem, I added two washers between the bearing in the hub, and the drum brake housing. Any ideas what could be causing the binding?
