2 things I've learnt from this


1. I need a breaker bar

2. My back is NOT as strong as I thought it was :surrender:


2 of my bolts were on so tight I thought I was going to have to pop to my local garage - when I did get them off - there was a lot of white powder - so some form of corrosive action going on ???

Are 20mm spacers deep enough to cover the stock bolts? I think I would prefer 20mm spacers instead of 25mm



Not on my 370 at the front.


I tried slip spacers to get the 23mm clearance necessary, but they led to the discs getting distorted ( the slip spacer alloy got 'crushed' unevenly) hence I use 25mm spacers all round.
