    I have a 2006 NE5. My rear brake has recently started squeaking after approx. 700 miles. With the band brake, is there a standard method for adjustment? Are the screws with the locknuts there for adjustment of the band?

    Hi You need to remove rear shoes and scuff them off with 220 sand paper.Then cut 3 equal spaced groove cuts at about a 30 deg angle to push brake dust out when brake is used. hope this helps Bill Green Vancouver Whizzer

    John. Follow Bill Greens repair advise it wooks great, There was a lot of discusson last summer about the rear band brake squeel noise,I did both of my bikes,easy to do, the rear wheel bearing usually need a little wheel bearing grease anyway. Try it you'll like it.
