You need to move your shed nearer to the house.

On the topic of caliper parts, how important is the shim?

 Mine hasn’t had one whist I’ve owned it. Is it basically an anti squeal shim?

You can ride with them and you can ride without them in my experience  ,I've never heard or felt any difference irrespective of Honda pads or after market. But I f they are supposed to be there .............

As you say Martin, they'll be for anti squeal purposes ( for the brakes not the rider).

On my Euro, this part decided not to stay put after a while. I worried about it not being there but the brakes work the same. And don't squeal either.

 

Maybe we should ALL be removing them to sell to the Concourse folk? Along with that funny brake disc mudguard thing (Euro rear) - I once followed JohnnyAlpha home from a CX rally and at one point had to take avoiding action as it bounced down the road past me! My how we laughed.

No longer in the club, but very much an invited guest on recent Scottish CX events! Johnny is spending a LOT of time fettling on the TWO K75 DarkSides he owns, and he still has his FJ12 too. He's a good motivator for ME getting garage stuff done too!

Howgate, Midlothian. But I couldnt drive as I was laughing so much, so John came back to see what's up! I think he picked it up.

 

I might have a spare one (or that one) somewhere...

Well I'd be glad to buy it from you when I get round to fitting minor details like brakes n stuff.  Cheers

this is not an anti squeal shim but a load bearing shim that stops the steel pad backing from eating into the caliper. anti squeal shims are the thin shims with a half circle cut out that goes between the piston and brake pad
