I have learned the hard way you MUST remove the caliper from that part while putting the rear assembly back together..... the alternative is risking a mess like this.... I am amazed it is not leaking everywhere....Replaced the sprockets and tires and I was so proud of myself. I road around the subdivision, but I had this, "I forgot something " that wouldn't leave my head.
Our driveway is steep, and I pull into it and decide to stop and roll back down and check the mail. I tap the back brake and nothing happens, so I get on it harder and harder. Eventually, it stops responding.
I get off the bike, slam my helmet down (scratching a brand new shield), and find this piece of stupidity. It was ALL THE WAY AROUND and under, but it rolled back forward ...some
The bike is too hot to work on, at the moment. :headbang::headbang::headbang:
