fecking seek o this flipping rebuild now. does any one no what could course this, 68 sx front disc hub spins freely stops when press brake but when put onto bike and tighten on links the brakes seem stuck on ,slackin it of and it frees again
I had a similar problem with a Beedspeed kit for my GP. Here's what I put on the LCS site...
Finally got some time to fit the front hub again, using the disc type axle pin.
All on ok , still outta line (gave up on that now) but after this , the brakes were sticking , big style. Over a long journey they would get hot as fk.
Noticed next day though , when I'd calmed doon, that because there was no nut holding the caliper mount in place, the alingnment on the caliper mount between the drum pin mount & centre nut was way out , making the plate veer off to the left at the top (as you look at it from the front)
Fitted 1 washer (2 was just too tight to get on) to the caliper side, and wheel spins free as onyhing now.
Still sits off centre, but wheel turns , and stops when it's meant to.... so that'll do the now.
Jeez , did any of you understand all that ?"
Basically , the hub/disc was sitting slightly off centre so the disc was at an angle in the caliper, fixed by packing in washers.
sounds as if it could be a missing thin nut .does the disc move side to side when in place on scoot watch when you press lever if side to side play something defo not right i have just put one on mine from scoot rs and is fine your welcome to come round and see if there is any thing differant
