Rear Brakes sticking


Recommended Posts

Hi Viz,

Hope you have sorted the problem, one way or another, but I'm pretty confident that the red grease was not the actual issue.

Back in the days when seal kits didn't come with the little sachet and red stuff, we used to simply smear a little brake fluid on the seals during assembly.

Nowadays, the sachet of assembly grease is usually provided and is widely known not to cause any issues.

Even it the seal displacement/retraction effect is initially reduced, the natural run-out in the disk will ensure that no binding occurs while the grease displaces.

Fingers crossed it's sorted either way.

Andy.
