Re: Just Finished Rebuilding My FD
Charlie, I've watched the video and was wondering if there is any reason you can't just use a feeler gauge to measure the space between the bearing and the housing, add the desired preload to the gap and shim accordingly instead of using the dial indicator.
Ii bought a 2000 LT with 44k on it back in July and have put another 10k on it. I was thinking of doing a pre-emptive rebuild over the winter since I have no maintenance history on the bike. I sure wish I could have made your tech session.
