Is there any reason I cannot install brakes myself

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Typically I let the shop do all my binding related work, right or wrong, they are the "experts". I was wondering if there was any harm in me installing my own brakes on a pair of Marker Griffon bindings... There are just two screws after all. Not looking to get flamed here, just double checking that this isn't something that throws off something with the DIN...   I'm going from 110mm to 90mm, since the 110's overhang just a smidge on the 88mm waist.

No reason for you not to do it yourself.

Remember to bleed them before trying them out.

Those are Air brakes, no bleeding needed.

I stand corrected.

 

Anyway, make sure that the rotors are OK before reassembly or else they'll be vibration as you're slowing.

A lot of bindings are designed so that removing a screw removes the brake for tuning purposes.  My solly's have one screw; don't know about my Griffons--I use rubber bands. According to the internet it's the same thing with the Griffon.  Nothing to adjust just remove the screw, replace the brake, crawl around the floor to find the screw, replace the screw.

Lucky for me I have a CDL with an air brake certification... Thanks for the thumbs up, and a good laugh
