supermoto front tyre rub
Posted July 25, 2008 - 02:57 PM
anyone had a problem with front tyre rubbing against fork guard holders when forks compress?
I have 03 WR450, and fitted talon wheels with correct spacer for brake side and original speedo drive, 17" tyre is 120/70.
Also 320mm " braking " disc runs very close to caliper bracket slot about 0.5mm one side and maybe 3mm on the other .ie not centralised in slot. Talon confirmed I have correct bracket TB14 and hub is correct 72295.

Ive got Talon motard rims on now and they seem to fit better but I still have the dedicated caliper, not the caliper extender bracket!

roushxteam199, yes if I can figure out how to post them
Snakko88, agree was thinking that too about washers
wr400milky, did you consider thinner tyre,, are there other options than 120.. think my rim is 3.5,,,
Based in luton, any uk guys do track days ..did a few on sports bike and fancy doing some on SM

i`ve moved from safest country in europe (road deaths per year)
to the worst, i don`t even go on road at weekend`s in summer, so many people die on bike`s here it`s shocking
so i`ll stick to back roads and the dirt,
good excuse eh??
