    1985 Z50R Brake Spring Question

    I am having trouble with brake shoe replacement on a 1985 Z50R. I managed to get the U-shaped thick wire brake spring off of the pivot post to take everything apart but am now having trouble with the reassembly. Is there a trick to easily get that brake spring slipped back up over the post? I looked high and low on the internet for how-to's but all I could find was info on older bikes with two regular brake springs.

    Install the spring on one side. Use a big screwdriver to pry it in on the other side.

    Insert one end of the spring in the brake shoe, then put the top of the spring over the post, and lastly insert it into the other brake shoe. It takes some doing, but it can be done.

    Thanks guys. That worked. I put the left leg in the shoe hole, then hooked it over the post and was able to pull the right leg of the spring into the right shoe hole by hand.
