Has anyone had gotten something they like to hold the rear caliper during wheel changes?
Bracket won't help in that case, but what I find makes the job significantly easier is to find/make a wooden board that is exactly the height of the rear wheel off the ground when it's in the rear stand. That way, it's perfectly aligned, and all you have to do is roll the wheel on rather than fumble with trying to hold the wheel in mid-air while sticking the axle back in.You're right. The Caliper bracket fits in a channel and when you insert the wheel, the rotor keeps the caliper in place. But you have to get the wheel with rotor into the caliper while it is loose in the channel plus get the chain on the sprocket while lining up the wheel to insert the axle. I've done it many times, but it's a little like juggling chain saws....LOL
Oh that seems pretty nice. The YouTube video shows a demonstration on a CBR1000RR-R which is nice.
