Oh dear. CMNSL picture which differs. Washer and spring washer. The rubber bush isn’t shown as it appears elsewhere in the fiche. ::)

That's the front bolt Phil, the rear is not a hex headed bolt.

Thanks delta rider for the link to a previous forum discussion. Sounds like there are lots of different opinions, not helped by the inconsistencies in Honda manuals and schematics.
I am reasonably sure that the torque arm should not be tight at the brake end, and it would seem logical to me to have the rubber washer between the aluminium brake case and the steel torque arm, so this is going to be my set up when I get the new t-bolt from David silver.

I was looking for a new T bolt a few weeks ago and IIRC DS didn't have one in stock.

Hi Oddjob,
I think its on back order. They have taken my order and sent an order acknowledgement.

I replaced mine with a shouldered stainless steel bolt, shaped the hex end to fit inside the opening in the brake plate. I also did the same with the front bolt.

Just in case DS lets you down.
