Perhaps we could make a group effort and reply to the video informing others to NOT do this. That way when someone new views the video they will see the multiple replies saying this is a bad idea and give it a second thought before doing it. Just an idea.
...when assembling the rear brake there is the point when you should step on the lever with loose nuts at the brake cam bushing in order to allow the cams to center themselves. But afterwards itīs done and you must fasten the nuts then. The cams are not designed to center themselves on every single braking...
Well I finally did find out one thing. My drum is out of round.I put it on the centerstand, and kept spinning the wheel by hand, while tightening the adjuster nut til I could hear it rubbing, but it didn't rub all the way around, more like half of a turn, then no rubbing. Even if the shoes are not centered, the only thing that can cause that is an out of round drum.
My mechanic has seen one if these. Not necessarily out of round but the brake surface and bearing seat are not on the same center. No way it can ever work. On the front end, loosen the lower triple bolts and the axle bolts. Loosen the steering tube clamp bolts on the upper nacelle. Wedge the front wheel against the wall and twist back and forth. Get things centered and tighten things up again. There may not be anything bent, just twisted out of alignment. Scott
