Re: :3question: How easily is a rotor bent????????? please help

yea i backed out the parking brake bolt bled them out and they are working great with my new rotor. i guess the guilt got to the guy at the dealer and he agreed to give me some free parts for my troubles and ordered me some other stuff at cost. i guess things work out for the best one way or another. thanks for all the input guys ur a great help.

Damn, so they refused? sorry maybe you already said it, was it a brand new bike or used? how long did you wait to take it back and complain? they should have fixed it if you're sure they did it, go threaten them a little more, talk with the owner, and then be like hey, I'm never coming back here, I will never recomend anyone to come back here and call the Better business buera!

for removal... next time you need a tourch to heat up the bolts before you take them out! as for the caliper, new pads wont fit in i dont think unless you remove the braking break plate and then push the caliper all the way in. if you use the same pads, they should be ok with out doing that

You may have to back off the parkbrake if it is still installed

Bent my rotor taking Rappy off the trailer once... missed the ramp and dropped it off the side, just a bit... landed on the rotor... bent to hell. They are not designed to support any load other than braking forces. Get a good swing arm skid plate... cheaper in the long run than replacing bent rotors and sprockets.

Not sure why they were using a fork lift....
I've bent a couple rotors trail riding, even with aftermarket skids! (It was usually from backing into a boulder or something)
They can be tweaked (bent) pretty easily, it is probably just the rotor.

what the fuck are they loading it with a damn fork lift anyway... being a shop the should know better... you just don't pick anything with a forklift... if it were on a pallet or something thats different.. but not on an unprotected quad... i would be all over their ass as soon as i saw the forklift coming over to pick it.. thats retarted

Re: :3question: How easily is a rotor bent????????? please help

i raised the rear and spinned the tire manually and at certain points the rotor hits the caliper. i doubt it the axle and ill soon find out. just came back from the shop with a new stainless steel rotor looks sweet and its alot thicker. any tips for putting it on?
