    Brake Lever will not return to original position...

    I've got a set of Hayes HFX9 HD Masters and the lever wont return to it's original position. It's stuck somewhere in between. You can press it and it'll return to the center... not all out to where it supposed to be... any ideas on what i should check for?

    A little.....

    too much loctite on the adjuster bushing threads of the pushrod? It usually works its way to the outer diameter of the adjuster bushing and prevents the lever form returning. Give us a call on Monday and we'll send you some of the new bushings. 1-888-MTN-DISC
