FICHE TECHNIQUE N°6
the play of the SFC 1000 and RGS Corsa floaters disc brake
(Click on the pictures to enlarge)
The SFC 1000 or
RGS Corsa racing Brembo floaters disc brakes are subject to wear, resulting
in a play beetween the discs and them carriers.
Most of the time, this is the alloy disc carrier which is worn out, used by the buttons while braking.
These discs being
nowaday very rare and very expensive, it is possible to reduce the play fitting
bigger buttons after having rebore the holes
in the dics and carriers.
The original diameter
of the bores and buttons is 13.5mm, the maximum wear is around 15mm. Then, it
is necessary to find new buttons,
bigger than 15mm. These buttons are available at France-Equipement i France (www.france-equipement.com), they notably propose new
16mm buttons, equipped with a circlip and an elastic washer which fit perfectly.
It is necessary to rebore the discs and carriers at 16.1mm, then you get brand new discs!
