Disk brake clearance issue
I've just replaced my old Giant branded MPH Disc brake system with the new Deore XT BL-M775 Disc Brake Lever and BR-M775 Disc Brake calipers, both front and rear are IS post mount 160mm disks. After following the set up instructions I can't get engough clearance between the disk pads and the rotor. This is even after pushing in the pistons and rebleeding the system and adjusting the caliper mounting/ angle on the IS post adaptor.
As I am reusing the old MPH rotors can anybody confirm whether original Shimano XT rotors would be thinner in width than the MPH rotors. This would account for the lack of clearance between the pads and MPH rotor.
Thanks for the help
