    XT BR-M750 Upgrade on my 99 Specialized FSR

    I bought these brakes as an upgrade and something quirky about them. First of all, when i mount them in the middle spring hole there is absolutely no tension, even with spring screw fully tightened. Then, when I do mount them on the top spring hole the angle of the pads is so off its ludicrous. Also, when, im wondering if they even fit. I mean, they dont even slide on the whole way, still a half inch on the post but the pin is in, the little pin. im wondering what the deal is. it seems like the pin gets bigger but then it wont fit in the fork hole if the brake did slide down the post the whole way. enclosed are the pics where u can see the pin, the mount gap and. why wont they slide down the whole post and why does the pin get bigger 1/4" up the pin post? Its a mystery to me. Thanks

    Put the pin in the middle hole so the pads line up properly, then carefully bend the spring by hand until there's enough tension. Install the brakes, then unhook the spring from the top end of the brake arm and bend it outwards a bit, then do the same to the other side, then hook the springs back in and recheck the tension. Repeat as needed, then fine tune it with the adjustment screws. Everything else looks fine, that's just the way the brakes are.
