    Juicy 7 Caliper Adjustment Problem

    I was playing around with my new 7's before mounting the caliper and after I removed the red caliper spacer, I was not able to get them adjusted wide enough to get the rotor to fit, even after going to both extremes with the adjustment knob.

    Anybody have any suggestions, less bleeding the system, as I do not have a LBS within 70 Miles, and my bleed kit is currently in the mail. Thanks all!

    just loosen the cps bolts, squeeze the lever a few times, keep the lever squeezed then at the same time retighten your cps bolts in an alternating fashion...if there's still some rub after that, find the side that's rubbing and place a business card between the rotor and the pad on that side and go through the above directions again with the business card in place

    CPS stands for caliper positioning system.
    Refers to the caliper mounting bolts and the cone and cup washers.
