    That is what I did. I put some gear marking grease on the weights



    To mark out the high spots



    Then took a dremel to them I took tiny amounts off and the high spots kept moving each time the wheel could rotate a bit more, The whel went on and off about 20 times till there was the clearance.
    Luckily the drivers side had less weights on and the only high spot was this bolt corner.



    So both are done and all bled but the rain was bad this afternoon so not ideal conditions for testing brakes and adjusting my bias bar, so I will have to wait for a dry day to test them.

    The weather was dry Sunday afternoon, and after a couple of runs and adjusting the bias bar, I can report the braking is far improved. I can now lock the brakes without pushing my back into my seat and pulling on the steering wheel . thanks David for this well worth while mod.

    I just need to sort my wheel wobble that appears around 70-75 mph but goes around 80 mph.

    Cool, I'm so happy to hear the hard work and ingenuity in approach paid off. You're install is so much neater than mine, I'm sure you are very happy....and I'm guessing a few may follow in your path

    'Ello, 'ello, 'ello, Officer .... aren't you going to ask him how he could possibly experience that wheel wobble on UK roads?

    I have to agree, and since we both asked Dirk if he'd make us up a set back on 19 Sept do you think he'd give us a discount for a job lot?
