View Full Version : xs650 front brake

12-21-2009, 7:35 AM
Got some work done on saturday morning and came across an issue that I hope isn't a big deal. If you look in the pics you can see that my caliper doesn't line up with the disc. I can't figure out why this would be other than this guess - My front wheel and disc are from the 1973 that i used as the donor bike but my 35mm front end is from a newer bike that has the newer brake set up. I wonder if there is a slight difference in how the disc is spaced since the two look different. If it is as simple as that i have one of the newer discs so it's no problem to pull it back apart and swap em'. If anyone can help me out I would really appreciate it -
