After installing the pads, the calipers were attached to the radial-mount bracket using Allen head bolts torqued to 85 lb-ft. As this photo illustrates, by running bolts through the top of the caliper, the radial-mount setup removes braking stress from the caliper body and isolates it to the bracket instead. The arrangement also facilitates quick and easy caliper removal. Next, to help center the caliper over the rotor, a feeler gauge was wedged between the pads and rotor. The gap between the tops and bottoms of the pads should be the same. Baer includes a set of shims to dial-in this measurement.
