BRAKE DRAG FORCE CHECK


1.Remove the brake pad, shim and clip (Refer to ).

2.Using a spring scale, measure the hub sliding torque in the forward direction with the brake pad, shim and clip removed.
3.Install the brake pad, shim and clip (Refer to ).
4.Start the engine, and depress the brake pedal lightly two or three times. Then stop the engine. (Depressing force: approximately 50 - 100 N)
5.Turn the brake disc 10 times in the forward direction.
6.Using a spring scale, measure the hub sliding torque in the forward direction with the brake pad, shim and clip installed.
7.Obtain the disc brake drag force (difference between measured values of item 2 and item 6).
Standard value:

    68 N or less <Front>
    68 N or less <Rear>
8.If the brake drag force exceeds the standard value, disassemble the brake caliper assembly to check for fouling/rust on the piston sliding section and piston seal deterioration, and confirm whether the guide pin and lock pin slide properly (Refer to <Russia-Front>, <Europe-Front> or <Rear>).
