TIP: Use the bolt on your disc caliper to help keep your pads straight when braking. Quite often pads wear prematurely when this bolt is not tight causing the pads to bed into the disc at an angle.

The cable adjuster removes slack from stretched cable. Just the adjustment bolt to adjust for pad wear.

Popular mechanical disc caliper to suit 10″ and 12″ disc rotors.

Anti-rattle clip on the disc caliper pads helps prevent chatter and help keep the disc pads square to the braking surface on the disc rotor.

Tip: Adjust the disc caliper bolt until tight then back off 1/2 turn.

This adjustment helps prevent pad chatter and keeps you pads perfectly aligned during braking.

The cable adjuster near the override coupling should only be used to remove slack from the cable.

New caliper anchor plates can be found here.
