    hope mono mini help

    Rear brake is very tight. I have taken the caliper off and spread thre pads but the brakes are still very tight. No space between pads and rotors and imposible to set up with out drag. Please help. The brakes are very tight, no play in the lever (no modulation).

    This is usually a sign of an overfilled system with brake fluid. Rotate your lever to level, remove the master cyclinder cover, then spread the pads. Some fluid will come out so be prepared to catch it with a rag. Replace the cover and clean well with alcohol.
