Thanks sounds like my best bet is da7900 or the ee brakes? I will try the cable upgrade first and see if that helps. I hate the cable grab and stick on the front brake after a long down hill I wiggle the brake to make it kick back off the rim.

Lee can I see some full bike shots I am thinking of doing a 2011 rxr s in white.

Apparently, the soft springy motion is probably due the softer springs that the ZG's use. I'm not too sure if a change of cables will solve the issue but I would say its more of a design induced problem than the cables actually causing them to go un-centered.

I've brought mine back to the local dealer and the mechanic used two wrenches to center the brakes and all was well. No more misalignment thus far.

Anyway, I'm riding the 2010 RXR in White and not the 2011 rxrs.
