I've been fiddling with these brakes for weeks now on my '98. got the shorty cable on today but still has issues. the pads are new. mechanism is all greased up and moving nicely. I've tried adjusting these things every possible way you could imagine. I get a really good pedal for 1 or 2 pushes of the pedal, then it just locks up. the self adjuster doesn't seem to know to stop adjusting. after a couple pedals it is so tight inside the housing that the caliper has no room to come back and locks the pads to the disk. all I have to do is loosen one of the 3 hexhead screws 1/8 to 1/4 turn and it frees the caliper instantly. but the very next time I push the pedal down with my hand it does it again. completely locked up. then loosen the next hexhead a bit and bingo, freed up again. I don't have to tell you what happens the next time I push the pedal down. thinkning about trying to deactivate the self adjuster so it stops cranking down the push pin thing. i'd rather adjust it once every other time I go riding than have brakes for one or two stops then a smoking disk cause they won't release. I have the spring in place and it works fine. any ideas?
