My front brake has rattled since I bought the bike.
Today I figured time to clean out the calipers and found I was missing the small spring from each side
Amazing the image has uploaded. the part numbered 8 spring pad are both missing; is this likely to be the cause of the rattle?
Pad pins were nicely greased and the little caps, a nice surprise seeing the strange way the brakes had been serviced.
A previous owner had topped up the fluid without removing the rubber diaphragm in the master cylinder, in effect had not topped it up at all.
Am also ordering a master cylinder rebuild it.
