All going well, but......

Postby sixtysix » Tue Mar 01, 2016 2:58 pm

Have had the CT for a while now, but have been busy with family and travelling, so just really started to put miles on now.The bike seems to run well with no problems, last week my daughter requested we ride the bike to the school father daughter dance! but on the way home could hear a rubbing noise from the sidecar wheel. What I have found is some movement in the brake rotor, I have searched this forum and found the threads on wave washers, but my question is can I ride the bike until service is due or get it seen straight away. The brake does not drag and the rotor does not overheat, also should the floating rotor have some movement? Thank you

The rotor can have very minute movement with some force but should be fairly solid
