How to identify model year for Avid Juicy 7?
I bought my Stumpjumper in 2008 and the LBS replaced the original Juicy 5 due to some problems. They upgraded to Juicy 7 with some they had in their inventory, but I don't know the model year. Now I need to do a lever rebuild. There are several kits out there listed by model year. How can I tell what model year these Juicy 7s are? There is nothing written on the brakes themselves. These have the red aluminum contact pad adjustment dials.
They all do.
These have the red aluminum contact pad adjustment dials.
2004 & 2005 models are the same.
2006 & 2007 models are the same.
2008 & 2009 models are the same
The 2004-2005 Juicy 7 Does not use the Worm Gear Retaining C-Clip.
See pages 8 & 10 here or you can download the manual from Avid here.
Exploded diagrams and parts # of the 2006-2007 and 2008-2009 levers can be seen here or on page 16 here if you download the complete Avid Spare Parts Manual.
The lever blades on the 2008-2009 models have the Avid logo on them.
The red adjuster knob on the 2008-2009 models is hollowed out.
2005 Juicy 7
2006 Juicy 7
2007 Juicy 7
2008 Juicy 7
2009 Juicy 7

Excellent, thanks! Very thorough. Mine has the adjuster knob hollowed out and Avid written on the levers, so I'm in the 2008-09 group.
You would think they would put a model # or year stamp somewhere.
calipers have a 11 digit date code on the underside/ levers have a 6 digit code on the edge that mounts against the shifters.

Your brakes were produced on the 18th week of 2008. These would make them a 2008 model. The model year cut off is July 1, or roughly week 27. Anything past week 27 would be considered the next model year.
Hope this helps!
