- Disk Rotor help – something simple?
Good evening all,
Just bought a pair of Avid HS1 rotors to replace Shimano SLX ones, same sizes (obviously!) but upon fitting the pads are rubbing like a bitch – I am relatively new to these new fangled disk brakes, is there a way to adjust the pads? Or is there something else I am missing? The brakes are Shimano M666 SLX jobbies, if that helps.
Thanks to the collective as ever,

use a plastic tyre lever or similar to prize the pads apart, refit the wheel, loosen the brake caliper bolts then pull the brake and whilst holding the brake lever retighten the caliper bolts, this should solve your problems. If there is still some rubbing loosen the caliper bolts and adjust by eye.Posted 5 years ago

either do it that way or follow the directions from the hope set-up vid. basically you aline the caliper to the center of the disc and tighten then pull leaver one piston will move faster then other try and slow that piston down with a small flat screw driver so pad contact disc at exact same time……… or just do it lazy wayPosted 5 years ago
