My brake disc has a high spot that the brake pad touches. You can hear it at low speeds. I have tried to take the lock nuts off but they just spin without coming off. Does anyone have a way to get them off? Oh by the way new nuts cost $2.95 at the stealers.

Put a screwdriver under the nuts as you loosen them, and aply pressure downwards on the bolt, then afrer it rises a little, put a wrench under them. The other option is to use a hack saw and cut then off if you are going to replace them. Just don't cut the lines or rotor.

Hope this Helps,

The bolts that hold the rotors on are long bolts and the heads can be found on the other side, on the other rotor. Two wrenches will do it.

i'm not sure if this applies to the aspy, i know it does for the interstate.

just make sure you put the bolts back in the way they off, meaning the head of the bolt to the right side and the nuts on the left side

I just looked at a spare wheel I have and the nuts would be on the left side, sitting on the bike. I'm not sure it makes any difference. The manual doesn't specify and as long as the rotors sit tightly against the wheel, I'm not sure it's an issue. IMHO.

it does on the interstate mike,if you put the nuts on the left side it interferes with the speedo drive, i made that mistake,

its not the nuts as such, its the threaded part of the bolts that issticking out further than the nuts that catches the speedo drive
