    Magura Gustav M adjustability

    Greetings,

    Apologies if this topic has been covered already but after searching through the forums, I failed to find any info re adjustable options on the pads of my Magura Gustav M brake pads on my 2003 Ventana El salty. I would appreciate it if someone can direct me to finding manual for the brakes. I would like to fix the brake dragging problem. Tks,

    I had the discussion about Gustav dragging with Lonnie @ Magura USA recently and his answer was this -

    "When set up properly the Gustav will have no drag.
    They have tendencies to drag because of the floating caliper and if the pins are not kept clean and/or get bent the caliper will not float properly and then would drag."


    All Magura's manuals can be downloaded from their site.

    Tks Mike for the heads up. I have contacted the tech at Magura for a manual since I could not find the link in their website for download. A good starting point, though.

    In 20 seconds I found it under Service/Downloads on their site -
