Re: cable operated front disc poor performance

I had the same problem with a new scootrs remade internal disc.
The spring on the actuating arm was to weak. After swapping it for a new one, the brake worked fine.

Re: GRP Panels

Chris did eventually reply to my first Mail, I sent him details as to the parts I require and everything has gone quite again. Getting to this stage has taken 5 weeks, I am still waiting for an answer regarding pricing. I asked about a rear frame with moulded GP panels, not as special as complete on...
