Rear Brake Drag
With back wheel an inch clear of the ground and trans in neutral, it takes 10# or more force applied to the rear wheel at the rim to move the wheel against brake drag. To me, this seems excessive and could well be whats costing me mileage.
When I put in the new 6.6 kg rear spring I had all that apart and installed new rear brake pads at the same time. Is it possible to put something in the wrong way to cause this ??
