Question Rear Brake Pivot and Stand Worn

Hello all, giving my R90s a bit of a tidy up, the brake pivot in the frame is sloppy, any suggestions?

Initially thinking of cutting the lower 3/4 of it off and brazing a new sleeve on.....?


Also the main stand bolts are flogged out.

20 years ago drilled out some R75/5 ones filed some nuts down to get round sleeves and migged them in..

I see scope creep setting in.

Also does the r90s seat have different rubber pads than the r90/6? Thinking they need 4 of the 20mm ones at the front

cheers John

John,

I clean and grease the rear brake pivot. It's kinda sloppy but works fine. may repair someday.

The center stand threads can be repaired with the thread inserts made by Boxer Metal.



$39 for a pair. Well made.

Can be found at http://boxermetal.com/online-store/#...87&id=32521363

That sounds like a good plan.

And you have have to do some major fixit work on the centerstand pivots since you've fixed them once (or more) already...

A new sleeve is a good idea, if yours is well and truly stuffed.
Perhaps find some hollow bar and get it bored to suit a bush. A grease nipple and a bush with grease grooves would be good.
Also the bush in the brake lever could be replaced, as well as the bolt.
