Sharp Brakes

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

Not sure if its me or the bike?

My braking seems to be on or off, no in-between, no modulation

My bike is a 2004 Scorpa SY250, but all bikes of this age seem to use AJP brakes

Went to a trial this weekend locking front and back brakes, did not see anybody else lock front!

Your help is needed, what should i do?

Thanks

When I first went to a bike with powerful front brakes, I struggled.  To make them more progressive, someone suggested cutting an X in the pads with a hack saw.  It worked.

I found the front brake on my Beta evo excessively over powerful when I first got it, it was very hard to brake smoothly, maybe I got used to it or maybe it "ran in" it's allright now though, you could file a chamfer on the pad edges, it may help.

Hi Guys

Many thanks for the replies

Went with mcman56's suggestion and cut an X in the pads, both front and rear

Also adjusted the front brake lever so it engages sooner so i have less leverage effect on it

Seem to of worked, went to a trial much happier with the brakes

Thanks again guys
