Next expected surprise

Post by arnoldsq »



I knew from the start the back breaks were stiff. In order to move the bike I actually needed to hit the caliper with a 2x4.

Since I am waiting on carb parts to show up I moved to breaks. 2 hours in the ultrasonic and a hammer and punch was needed to break the corrosion free.

Mine where not stuck but didn't look much different when I got them apart. A new set of pistons and seals did the trick, make sure you clean out those grooves well!

Yes I’m about to order parts. And start polishing the caliper.
