    08 XT Levers

    I'm trying to figure out why I have very little lever play in my XT Brakes. There's a screw that is supposed to provide that adjustment (you can see it here with the red text next to it):



    So far I find very little difference after fooling with that adjustment screw. It's not bad the way it is and I could get used to it but I prefer a bit more lever play. Any experiences with this?

    Push the pistons back into their bores and make sure that the system is not overfilled.

    Can you be a little more specific? Thanks.

    Level out the levers so they are parallel with the ground. Remove the rotor from between the pads. Remove the resi cap and diaphragm. Use a large flat head screwdriver, insert it between the pads and rock back and forth until the pad backing is flush with the caliper. Put everything back together. Pump the brakes a few times. Recenter the caliper if necessary.
