I bought avid juicy ultimate front and rear brake set no upper clamp to secure brake to handlebar, match maker setup was used. How or where do I find oem clamp?

I am assuming you are looking for the clamp portion of the brake lever.

If you do a google search for the following you can find several options on-line, or go into your local bike shop and have them order for you, they may even have in stock if they do alot of work with Hydraulic brakes.

Search: Avid Juicy Brake Lever Clamp or Avid Hydraulic lever clamp.

Here is a link as an example of a result.

My juicy ultimate brake lever (rear) has a lot of play and retracts slowly after engaging.

Have you ever oil & adjust the wire cord?
If no then oil the brake and adjust the wire cord which is being adjusted with the bolt-screw type mechanism. If you don't know the braking mechanism visit the authorized mechanic and show them as it is crusial part.

Avid Juicy 7 disc brakes:The front wheel was removed and the brake lever squeezed while the wheel was off. The front wheel goes on, but does not spin freely. It turns easily, but not freely like it...

It sounds like you have a piston that is not fully returned and is sticking.

Get a big flat bladed screw driver, take the wheel out and very carefully insert the screw driver into where the disc would sit and use the screw driver to try and push each brake pad back in without damaging your brake pads.

If this works go to a local bike shop and ask them for a avid brake insert for transporting your bike so this does not happen in future! :)

Avid juicy ultimate, rear disc brake vibration and noise

It is a lose bolt somewhere, OR somebody has touched your rotor with their hands OR there is oil in the pads.

Check ALL your bolts for correct torque, buy new pads and Rubbing Alcohol and install them AFTER you clean off the rotor and your hands with the Rubbing Alcohol. TRY not to touch the rotor or the pads with your hands.

Brake pads are shut fairly tight. Can't get disc

Your brakes adjust automatically (so when the pads wear down your levers don't get looser). What you did was pull the brake lever and it adjusted making the pads shut.

Anyway all you need to do is take a wide flat-head screw driver and wiggle it back and forth between the 2 pads.

Bought a set of avid juicy seven ultimate brakes,i squeezed the brake lever and now the pads are shut tight how do i slacken them off again!

take the wheel out insert a very large flat bladed screw driver up into where the rotor would sit and lever the pads back in very gently with the screw driver.

if this does not shift them they will need re-built by a Sram bike shop.
