    Same thing with my TryAll tire, only thing to do is grind the booster if you dont want to buy a new one.

    is this the booster that comes in the magura kit? If so just leave it off. It doesn't do much anyway. You can get a threshold for really cheap.

    o yea i forgot to add. i had to cut mine down, on the left side where the two holes are. the other side was fine, but i had to cut off one of the holes.
    just cut it, its not gonna do anything bad to the brakes. youre not gonna need the inside hole anyways.

    well u need to put the booster in on a angle that u can get at it wth a hammar and make sure that the booster is not sticking out to much or when u hit it, it will bend sideways instead of out. this idea is proably only a good temporary idea untill u can get a real booster.

    hope it helps

    I once saw someones brake set up where they used a V-brake booster on the top mounts. They cut off the original mount holes and re-bolted down the booster in one of the boosters drilled holes, cutting off any of the unused material below the bolts.
    Considering V boosters are cheap that might be the solution to your problem...

    Might..
