  • Dual disc narrow glide.

    Has anyone any knowledge of the existence of brake pad anti rattle springs for '77 up dual disc models. I have scoured the MCS catalogue to no avail.
    Thanks.

          Hi Chaz , I cannot see anti rattle springs in the parts book . But it does show two plates , that fit behind the brake pads . Pt Nos 44158-77 inner & 44161-77 outer . Just wondering if the previous owner may have left them off . You probably have the parts manual , so know all about them .

            Cheers Clive, they aren't fitted but I am going to. They are more anti squeal. This noise is more like a can half filled with loose change being shaken once. As if play is being taken up by pulling the brake.
            I will consider the flattened 3/8" hose, sounds like a good solution if all else fails which I think it might.
            Thanks.

                you should have the inner and outer plates...
                all of which have to do with positioning more than anti rattle
                the actual bolts(which can vary greatly in diameters) that affix the calipers and the bushings in the legs have more to do with movement(i.e. rattle) than anything
                one more important item of note is when you do change the pads, make sure they move freely into the recesses, as newer replacement pads are sometimes not sufficiently cut to offset the area.

                            Mine were making a racket. I checked the mounting screws and noted they had quite a bit of wear. I replaced them and got rid of most of the rattling which, for me, was good enough. Muttley rattles and clanks so much that as long as I know the noise doesn't indicate something is about to blow up or fall off I consider it part of the music.

                              I may be a little late on this.

                              My NG FE had small closed cell foam pads between the caliper and the fork leg. I usually bond them to the brake calipers and let the other side "float" on the fork legs.

                              I got some of this stuff if you need some (you'd have to cut and customize to your application of course)...
