Hi, sorry it’s the angle I took the photo I think, they are straight when looking from the top , bearings I have checked , measured face to face of bearings and all checks out ! I have measured fork centres and are spot on, I checked just Incase they were splaying out. 🤷♂️

I still had my old discs from a couple of years ago so I put them back on and still the same , of centre, so I put my current ones back on ! I will have to bite the bullet and bring to a garage after my hols , away next Sunday for two weeks! I will still try to solve problem in the mean time if I can and keep everyone updated , appreciate feed back and if nothing else as helped me vent my frustration on the zone , driving me insane.
I have just been back in the garage to put wheel back on and calipers and my 8 year old son mithered me to come, and while he was nagging me I didn’t line up caliper properly and when bolted up wasn’t straight and now I have stripped thread totally in caliper , nightmare!
the standard thickness of the new disc is 4.8mm to 5.2mm depending on the brand and the minimum service thickness is 4.5mm
Are these brand new discs you have bought and what brand?
Try this, mark your discs with a marker pen to indicate which side is currently facing outwards. remove both discs. Refit them on the opposite sides of the wheel with the marked face facing inwards to see if that makes a difference. (many discs can be fitted either way around)
It would suggest, if so, that the carriers are not perfectly flat. Not a problem if they spin true and straight.
Hi, measured discs other day and measuring at 4.8mm , discs were from I think Abe uk, had great reviews. I will try marking with marker and fitting opposite side during the week , also need to sort my caliper now as I have knackered the thread! Update during week
Hi, no still not sorted, been on holiday and the night i got back slipped on laminate flooring damaged ligaments and tendons on my knee, just my luck.
So i cant do anything with the TL at the moment as i cant bend or put any pressure on my knee, as soon as i am mobile again i will be back on the mystery i have tried everything recommended on the Forum and then some.
Remove the calipers. Loosen the axle pinch bolts. Make sure the axle is correctly fitted and tightened. Then with the pinch bolts loosened bounce your forks a few times compressing them firmly. Snug down the pinch bolts after bouncing, fit the calipers after pushing the pads back into the caliper. Screw in the caliper bolts but leave slightly loose so the caliper can centre itself. Spin the wheel and apply the brakes. This will centre the caliper. Repeat, keep brake on this time and snug down the caliper bolts. This process aligns forks, axle, wheel and calipers.
If someone else has already suggested a similar process, sorry.
I'm finding it difficult to navigate this new format. Old threads popping up too which is a pain.
Anyone else finding it a bit weird and will it get easier?
I need to play around with it a little more but so far it's a thumbs down from me. (n)
I fear the changes made to this site will be the final nail in its coffin. I came in to create a help thread for Clyde's overheating issues, but it's such a damn chore now to search and read through threads that I'm not even going to bother. I can't even quickly brush up on new topics and...
Okay here's the deal.
Either I'll be the mocked and made fun of or I'll succeed.
