Adjusting Ural Twin Leading Shoe Front Brakes

 Notes - Ural twin leading shoes brakes can work acceptably well if correctly adjusted.
There are square adjusters with lock nuts on the end of each brake shoe.
There is also an adjuster on the cable for fine adjustment.
The link rod on the outside of the brake plate that connects the two brake cam levers does NOT have a left hand thread in one end. This means simply turning it will not change the distance between the two brake cam levers.
However F2 Motorcycles Ltd do sell a replacement adjustment rod with left hand threads at one end.
These instructions assume you have the standard adjustment rod.

When fitting new pistons it is important to ensure that they fit the cylinders properly.
Before you start to measure anything carefully inspect the piston and gently remove any burrs from the bottom edge of the piston skirt with some 1500 grade wet and dry paper.
