I have a 06 coilair and when riding around turns my brake rotor is rubbing bad in the caliper. I have spent lots of time centering the caliper and I think the problem is coming from flex in the swingarm and hub.

I am now thinking of changing to a 12mm axle in the rear. I am planing on buying a Dope 12 kit and a new rear hub
Is there anythin else that I will need to make the conversion ?


Thanks
Jacob

The Hayes Mags are a tight fit. You may have some luck removing the pads and using a flat wrench or screwdriver shank to push the caliper pistons back. If the rotor is bent, you can true it with a crescent wrench. Otherwise, Magura, Formula, or Avid brakes will solve the problem. :thumbsup:

i noticed that my caliper sits a little cock-eyed on the rear tab of my coiler. i'm going to have to place some really thin shims/washers in there to get it to sit right. did you try using shims/washers?
