Re: new brakes

well had a go at fitting the new brakes today, found out that the discs were slightly bigger than the old ones so couldnt get the caliers to fit on. so i had to stick the old discs back on to get the calipers on, so a bit peed off about that, but i must admit the 4 pots look a hellava look better than the old ones. so now i need a pair of discs and didnt even think to measure what size i need when they were off
