    Rear rotor rubbing on calliper bracket

    Hi,

    Got my first bike, which is FZ6 04MY, which had bent rear brake rotor. After replacing the rotor with genuine Yamaha part Iíve noticed that rotor is rubbing on rear calliperís bracket. Things that were done: mounting surface for rotor on wheel cleaned, calliper bracket cleaned, wheel looks straight, spacers on both ends of wheel installed as per exploded diagram.

    Old rotor was rubbing only in 1 place.

    What did I do wrong?

    Thank you

    It sounds alot like whatever impact caused the bend of the rotor also caused the caliper pins to bend which would make it be out of alignment.

    Re: Rear rotor rubbing on calliper bracket

    When it was re-assembled, was this (below pic), inserted correctly with the swingarm?

    Tightening down the axle (87 lbs/Ft) with the rotor / bracket not correctly assembled WILL BEND the main bracket and the rotor..It's a bunch of force bending parts....


    If it's not now, or WAS previously tightened down-NOT correctly, that would cause the binding or now, a BENT BRACKET.








    If it's currently in the slot CORRECTLY, THE MAIN BRACKET IS very likely bent and need replacement.
    It's not uncommon to miss this and ruin the part..

    I don't remember if the wheel bushings are different on the FZ6. Could the bushing sizes be different and be swapped?
    If you can't fix it by hitting it with a hammer, it's electrical!

    ditto. The caliper itself and or the pins may have been bent in the same incident. You should get this fixed. After your front brakes - rear brakes are the most important thing you want 100% reliable.
    good luck!

    All fixed-used few extensions and a socket on an end to bend calliper bracket-no rubbing any more for about 1.5k miles and rear brake performance seems to be fine.
