I have been noticing a slight squeak coming from from the rear tire. Its been nice enough so i got the rear tire off for replacement and noticed the tire had a rub mark on it with a corresponding mark on the rear caliper support bar. Right now I have the correct size Conti Tours on it. Is there an interference issue with this tire or do I possibly have an issue I'm over looking?

:shock::shock::shock::shock::shock::shock::shock:

Also have rear brake issues but thats another day.

I had the same problem with an E2 on the rear of my 1200. It was hitting the raised letters on the right side. Never did figure out what caused it. There was nothing wrong with the swingarm, and the problem disappeared when I put the E3s on.:?

I had the same rubbing problem on my 82, I checked to make sure proper shim placement ,which was right. What I did was added shim on caliper side of axle, just enough for caliper bracket to clear. I think it was 1/8 th in thicknes. purchased it at Ace Hardware, Exact spacer center hole, even was stainless.

Had the same problem on my 82 Standard. I put a slight bend on the torque arm and that took care of it. Then I didn:t like the rub mark on the tire so I replaced it with a different tire. Not even close to rubbing again. Same size tire just different model tire. What a difference in widths.

Going with a set of Metezlers this time. I'll see if its close. if it is I'll bend the arm a little. Thanks for the input.
