beav it works there no way to make the brake pads thicker without the piston being move back in the caliper witch is what your trying to do here ...and yes there are shims in regular brake pads stock ...im not the first one who have had these come off ...this is a good temp fix for shot calipers ...that will work if they were in the caliper deeper ive don e this before and it works ...i had to do it to some junkyard calipers for the mongrel and it worked fine ...no problem at all :mrgreen: :builder:

Brake seems much tighter now,,, By gosh Joe you are correct.. Hey I was going to have my brake rotor turned or resurfaced, then my pea brain went to work again....what if I glued some fine metal sandpaper to the two extra brake pads I have put them on the bike and start it and put it in gear and get the wheel a spinnen :shock: , then just apply the brake until it sands a new surface, think this will work... :shock: Or should I pay 300 to have a machinist do it.. :shock: Oh hey fella's, just because I'm crazy enough to try this don't mean you should go do this.. It is after all you're brakes you do the safe thing and please don't go do this..

Nah, kick into 5th and run it up to 8 grand, get it over with.

Seriously though it's a great idea.
Run at idle in first maybe 30 seconds or so then let the disk cool.

Yeah sorry man, I have no idea where to get a new rotor for the rear, I would think maybe ebay...for a better used one..lots of times they will give you measuremnts on the rotors...I think the limit on the rear is like [6.0] thickness is [6.9 --7.1] mine is a hair under 7.0..I need me one of them there digital readout outside caliper thingy's measurer thingys... :smilie_happy:

Nooooooon sense, :smilie_happy: ,,I am little Beaver and I do the impossible, like Joe...I am willing to bet they didn't glue sand paper to the actual pad, if you sand it and run water on the disk as you go it should work...Hello.... :smilie_happy: :clapping: Oh and I do my work in the Garage not the backyard thank you very much ha ha :smilie_happy: :smilie_happy: :clapping: I am not other guys.......I shall do it and report back,,And if I'm wrong I shall say I was wrong... Seriously fella's don't go do this... :clapping: I might do the fronts too though, Only I shall place the paper on the pads and take it for a ride in the neighbor hood and carry a water bottle so I can soak the disk's as I apply the brake lightly...Should have a nice cleaned up disk when I get back, Yes.... :clapping: :clapping: How dare you call me a mechanic Mac, I am no such thing... :smilie_happy: :clapping: I am however the bestest glorified Armchair Wantabee Mechanic in this here country...The more beer the better I get.. :smilie_happy: Hey Brent are you entertained yet..??? You never know what kinda stuff I will think of next, I have never heard of this being done on any site..
