    BB7s vs helix hydros

    I replaced my bb7s with a pair of bengal helix 3 hydraulics. I have trouble adjusting the rear caliber as there are no adjustment bolts. Whatever I do I cannot avoid the rotor touching. Its so bad I am thinking to go back on bb7s. Any thoughts? Thx

    It would seem like, with a decent pair of hydros, that as long as the caliper is properly aligned and the rotor is straight, that the self adjustment of the hydros would take care of the rest. I've never heard of Bengal, but that doesn't mean anything. Are your rotors straight?

    Besides a un true rotor, wheel could need some truing.
