    Question Help with disc brake on scooter

    Hello, I have a suzuki sepia zz 1994,

    The wheel on the front seems to be a bit on the stiff side. Does anyone know how to release the tension in the disc brake or something a bit?

    more likely your wheel bearing(s) are shot.
    Insert witticism.

    Wot 'e said. But easy to check, just remove the screws that hold the brake caliper onto the forks, and pull the caliper cear of the rotor. DON'T touch the brake lever ! Spin the wheel and see what the bearings are like. If OK, the caliper needs rebuilding - a piston may have seized, or the caliper may be binding and not floating correctly.

    Brakes and bearings - best done by a shop unless you have a bit of skill.
    David must play fair with the other kids, even the idiots.

    replacement front disc stockists

    Was just wondering if anyone knew where to get a replacement front disc at a good price. It is a 8.66 in (220 mm) disc. I was looking for something that was a little different after spotting this online...
