Tektro Brake Bolt for converting Tektro brakes (e.g. Tektro R-540, R-539 and R-559) from the modern standard with short bolts to the old standard, where long bolts were used and secured with nuts instead of sleeve nuts that go inside the fork crown. Scope of delivery: 1 M6/M7 brake bolt (total length: 73mm) with washers and M6 self-locking nut.

To convert the brakes, only one long bolt is required, which replaces the short rear brake bolt. The brake with the long bolt is then mounted as front brake and the brake with the short bolt is used as rear brake. Please note: the installation of the long brake bolt requires some mechanical skills and should therefore only be done by experienced mechanics!

PLEASE NOTE: Tektro has also used bolts with M6/M8 threads on the R539, R540 and R559 brakes. Usually you can see this without measuring: M6/M7 - the brake has a ring nut, M6/M8 - the brake has a nut for 14 mm wrench.
