I have just received and fitted the brake shoes to the front brake plate.
I realised that the existing shoes did not have a chamfer on neither leading or trailing edges, whereas the new ones do.
Hopefully this will aid the braking performance ( providing the leading / trailing edge sequence works okay ).
I have applied the copper grease ( just about see it on the cam ! ).
Also , just for information, the outer diameter of the pads now measure 5.407 inch ( 137.34 mm). I hope this is sufficient a new pair of shoes.
Finally, I looked on our forum to see if there are torque settings for fixing the fork lower clamp bolts to secure the wheel spindle.
If not, I will be wary of overtightening them.
My d7 might be super one day !
