Adams brake hanger

Is my hanger right? i pulled off my back wheels to put stock wheels back on and finally had decent weather to spend a day in the garage and noticed my hanger. it moves a lot. is this norman? the bike is an 08 10r with an adams arm! it almost seems like the wrong hanger on it.

That's how the Adams brake tabs are. Nature of the beast.

+1000. That ain't right.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

son's 07 was same way when i installed adam's brake bracket on adams arm. would not sit flat on arm any way u bolted it up. just like your's. even ckd to make sure rear hanger and bracket correct, they were. should not move backwards with axle tight unless brake applied hard or brake pads dragging. post u a pic tomorrow of a easy fix i did using same bracket. looks much cleaner and works great.

That looks like a piss poor solution for a problem that deserves a much nicer solution. I could see that working if it was 1/2" longer on the bottom. Why it's not is beyond reason if he was going to program and make the thing why not make it right?
