 +These have a history of rattling while riding. \\
 +Here is one fix by Hopper of the XLFORUM to stop the rattle. ((Hopper of the XLFORUM http://​xlforum.net/​forums/​showthread.php?​t=238063)) \\
 +<​blockquote>​The fix I have used on this one and my old Shovel that had the same woeful brake was this: \\
 +Get a big rubber grommet. I use one that is commonly used to rubber mount air-con and refrigeration compressors. \\
 +It is black rubber, about 1" long and 1" in diameter with a hole down the center about 3/8". \\
 +Undo the top caliper mounting bolt and pivot the whole caliper about an inch forward. \\
 +Place the rubber grommet, with hole vertical, between the caliper and the fork leg. \\
 +Use a big G clamp to squeeze the caliper back into position and put the top caliper mounting bolt back in position and tighten up the nut. \\
 +This works. I have used it for years on two bikes. It stops the rattle, yet lets the caliper move enough to work properly. \\
 +It might be possible to use a smaller piece of rubber to make it less noticeable, but it is down behind the caliper so I don't worry. \\
 +I have never seen one of those retro-fix springs that is in the parts book. \\
 +But it looks like it would just hook from the caliper mounting pin to the anchor bolt, or somewhere, and do about the same thing. \\
