rear brakes

when i replaced my tire warren a friend of mine that has a small shop was doing it for me noticed how close the bracket for my rear brake caliper was to the rotor, it has been this close since i got the bike, here is a pic of it, just curious if it is normal or if my bracket is bent or something.

Re: rear brakes

Wow, that IS close! You made me go out into the garage and check my bikes. Mine too. I took the key out of the ignition and tried to slide it in there. No go. I never knew they were that close.

Re: rear brakes

No worries!!! as long as the rotor isn't bent. Just tell everyone that is all about close tollorances.

This is NOT correct! The wheel spacer you have on the brake side should be fitted to the sprocket side.

I have investigated this for someone before. See this thread;
