Hi, Can anybody explain how i get pictures onto the thread, i have tried and all i get is a message instead of pictures. View attachment 59672 ??? Thanks
One of the pads in this photo looks a bit bent or twisted.
Looks very strange.

You said you had the wheels powder coated.
Are the bearings located properly in the wheels. Just wondered if it might be this causing the forks to be pushed apart a few mm's

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. 🤷‍♂️

The only thing that can be making a difference then must be the discs. It is indeed a puzzle.

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.

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.

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.
