Wow! What kind words, 72triple! I'm especially proud over superlatives as "a mad man"! I'll print your message out and stick it on the workshop wall!

I hope soon to return to the interesting stuff in the workshop. A cheering like yours is good fuel for that! Thanks!
Thanks from plumbbob

My thoughts exactly, very well said. If I were to say it, it would probably come out something like "I hate you Dr_C"!!



Anyways, very inspiring man this Doctor of ours.....
Thanks from Dr_C

When I got this fork, the caliper brackets were deformed. The former mechanic had mounted tapered washers inbetween the brackets and the fork to compensate... On a roadracing bike?! Come on! So I had new ones machined, just copying the measurements. After a while I got big problems with the brake lever activating closer to the handlebar after say half the session/race. When suddenly having to use the whole hand, instead of two fingers, is very disturbing and costed positions. I switched braking fluid, made sure no bubbles where trapped, switched braking lines, braking pump, pads and put new seals in the calipers. Eventually the problem returned every time. Then my good friend Allan from SBS Brakes pointed out an obvious problem to me! The pads where not properly placed on the discs, so a tiny bit of the pad was outside of the disc! So after the pad got a little worn, the thermal expansion of the disc pushed the pads apart. That made the elonged stroke of the braking lever when the disc got hot! Why didn't I notice that myself?

Anyways, designing new brakets that ensure proper alignment was not as simple as one might think. I just had to CAD some mockups, having the machinist drill them, mount and test alignment. This is the third mockup, and now its close...

LOL not initially, i was genuinely visualizing you with dodgy brakes at 170ks into a nasty curve but since its turned out quite a humerous and popular faux par on my part il take all the dirty minded credit i can get
