Question rear caliper, anti-rattle plate

Service manual says arrow should point "in direction of travel". That implies to me, forward. Arrow points towards front of bike.

Looking over the Sayegh videos site, he's got an 'errata' saying the arrow points in the direction of wheel rotation - so arrow points 'up' towards rear of bike.


What's it *really* supposed to be and does it really make much of a difference?

"Direction of travel" when referring to wheels and/or wheel componants refers to the direction that the wheel is spinning when the vehicle is moving forward. With this in mind, a componant that is mounted toward the bottom of a wheel would actually be facing toward the rear of the vehicle. Such is the case here. (Just look at the arrows on your tires. When they're at the top, they face forward. Spin the wheel 180 degrees so the arrow is at the bottom...they face backward.) Follow the Sayegh video. And yes, it makes a difference.
