well the 400ex rotor DOES work but my rotor still looks bent & the hub wobbles & the brake rotor rubs the pads when I turn the hub. my spindle doesnt look bent & neither does my hub but how do you see if you have a bent hub?
Doesnt the calipe bolt up to the hub?? You may also have a bearing race that is bent or something similar. I am having a hard time picturing the front end in my head but those are some ideas to look for.
now that I look at my bearings one seems to be a little cockes then the other but the hub till goes onto the caliper fine...so i may need new bearings for my hub? would the bearings bend before the hub would?
ok..so i switchted the hubs with the rotors onto the other sides & the one that has the messed up bearing inside woblles on the other side...the side that is fine is also fine when switched onto the other spindle & spins freely...so now what Im doing is buying a pair of the front 400ex hubs for $45 shipped with bearings...they are that stock red color so they should look cool through the rim. will these work?
the rotor thickness is different but they do mount up & work fine./...the 400ex rotors seem to be a hair thinner...my 400ex hubs are gonna be trick...i have one stock 450r hub now for sale I guess now on ebay when I get these in
it wasnt the rotor that was bent b/c when I spin the hub it still makes the rotor wobble....I think it may have somethign to do with the bearings inside that front hub b/c when I took the other HUB & rotor from the left side it fit on fine & didnt wobble...it definately has something to do with the hub...i think im gonan go ahead & buy the 400ex hubs which are red & have bearings in them
