Two thin bits of wood about half inch thick,and 12 inches long.couple of washers the thicknes of the rotor, small bolt through the two of them in middle, turn bike over, put fork you have just made over rotor and apply a small amopunt of force at places rotor hits pads, a felt tipped pen helps to make high points, and repeat.

Don’t bother taking them off the bike it’s much easier and less faffing.
Put bike in stand or turn upside down, spin wheel gently to find where it rubs, use a clean adjustable spanner just wide enough to fit the disc and where it rubs pop the spanner over the disc and give it a gentle tug/push, repeat as required. This might take a bit of time to get the hang if it but it defo works. I find looking directly down on the calliper is much easier to see which side the disc rubs on rather than guessing.
If it’s the rear, taking the chain off helpsPosted 4 years agobooktownmanSubscriber
