Question about 1994 Moto Guzzi Quota 1000
Changed tyres the other day
Went for bridgestones BT 45s in OE sizes - well its what I'm used to and they instantly felt better than the fossilised michelins I had before. After I put the wheels back on the right disc is rubbing a little on inside of fork I have about 2-3mm clearance on the left and almost none on the right. Tried reversing the wheel tapping axle to make sure its home, loosening both fork yokes and bouncing wheel to align it, (didn't loosen mudguard stays tho) no joy. Next I'm going to try making up a 1mm or so shim to put between wheel bearing and the thick smooth end of axle , other side with the nut on it has a little 15 mm or so spacer inboard of the fork and 'nuff clearance. any tips? ,As much as you may hate to do it, I'd remove/loosen fender before installing wheel. It could be pulling on slider. Actually I'd pull it off. If wheel goes on okay I would then refit fender after every thing else involved in removal is re-tightened in proper order. I would then bend fender stays of fender so that it's a good fit without any binding of sliders. I would try this before re-spacing wheel and or calipers. ,,,
