I'd start by aligning the forks. Loosen everything including all the brake caliper bolts, lower triple clamp bolts and fork brace. Then tighten the upper triple clamp bolts.
Set the front tire against a solid object. A 4X4 will do if you can keep it from sliding. Pump the forks up and down several times. Note: Do not hold the brake!
Tighten everything from the top down except the brake mounting bolts.
It's important you don't wiggle the forks while doing this and the tightening proceedure must be from the top down.
Once all that is done, re-tighten the brake mountingbrackets, then thecalipers.
If the caliper still rubs, the brakes are installed wrong.
Why ain't we ridin'?
