Front Tire


Recommended Posts

I can not get my front tire back on!!! 👍:banghead:🤣

The brake will not like up between the brake pads and go through the little slot... I have been sitting here for hours trying to get these things lined up and be able to put the axel back through 🙂

Are the brake pads suppose to be loose and move when the tire is not on or are they suppose to be stuck in place? Mine are loose and keep moving when i am trying to line the rotor up. The rotor is not bent. The whole brake slides left and right too, while doing so a little rubber piece squishes and un-squishes.

The caliper slides on two pins, they have rubber boots on them, slide the caliper off them and clean+ re-grease them and put the caliper back on, then put the pads back into the sliders with the small brass check plate on top of the pads

this should help ease the caliper to move in line with the disc and violla

Not sure about the yz configuration, but whenever I do a front wheel removal, I remove the (2) bolts holding the entire caliper assembly to the fork leg, and let the caliper assembly hang out of the way. On reassembly, I install the wheel first, then install the caliper last. Don't forget to loctite/torque wrench the caliper bolts if you go this route.
