  • This is caused by the nuts on the threaded bar not being squeezed tight (with the kit in the correct location) and then the main bolt is being torqued to 140nm (105-lbs approx.)
  • This is a really good tighten.
  • After this is done (and before any effort to lift the bike is attempted) ensure the kit once again slides into its location accurately.
  • Re-check that all the 13mm s/s nuts are tight so the friction plate cannot move.
  • A very small amount of movement here will have a greater effect at the wheels.
