    Sounds like elixir owners. I binned my elixir CRs for Magura Marta.. I was spending 2 hrs per month on the CRs. The martas have required 0 maintenance in 2 months and took all of 5min to center.

    My process takes me less than 5 minutes.

    Apply locktite on bolts. Put them on loose, depress lever, then hand tighten lightly. Test for rubbing, tap caliper with the back end of a screw driver to center, test again, then tighten with wrench snug. Test again then torque down with a torque wrench.
