I have tried several times to center my rear rotor with no luck. I sort of hijacked a similar thread and was given this answer...........
"With the Stroker trail, the pistons are self adjusting. Remove the wheel, insert a flathead screwdriver between the pads, rock back and forth. Reinstall the wheel. Loosen the two bolts that attach the caliper to the adapter. Pump the lever a few times, squeeze the lever. Alternately snug the two bolts back up while making sure the caliper does not shift. Repeat if necessary."
I have tried several times, I must be doing it wrong. I finger tighten the caliper, Pull the lever and hold it inplace with a strap. Thighten down the caliper and release the brake lever. As soon as I tighten down the caliper to the mounting bracket is pushes the inner pad against the rotor. Everytime!! "making sure the caliper does not shift" IT SHIFTS EVERY TIME!! Where am I going wrong?
I stopped by my LBS and they suggested putting a washer in between the caliper and maouting bracket to create space. But if the pads are self adjusting, wont they just compensate to the gap created by the washer?
