How to Install Tektro Auriga Comp Disc Brakes

Learn how to install Tektro Auriga Comp hydraulic disc brake rotor, levers and calipers.

In this tutorial we’ll learn how to install Tektro Auriga Comp Disc Brakes. We’ll be covering other brands in future tutorials.

What You’ll Need

For this job you will need 2, 4 and 5mm allen wrenches and a T25 torx wrench. Your bike will also need to have compatible disc brake mounts on both the hubs and frame and fork.

Rotor Installation

First you’ll have to remove the wheel from the bike. Attach the rotor to the hub using the supplied bolts, making sure the rotation direction of the disc is installed in the same direction of the forward wheel movement. Tighten all 6 bolts with your T25 torx wrench until they are snug but not fully tightened. Then fully tighten the bolts in the following pattern until all are equally tightened to 4-6Nm.

Lever Installation

Place the brake lever with the half clamp on the handlebars, with the hose facing toward the center of the handlebars. Tighten the brake lever clamp in the desired position with a 4mm allen bolt. Tighten these bolts to 5-7Nm. If needed, adjust the brake lever reach closer to the handle bars with a 2mm allen wrench.

Caliper Installation

Before installing the disc caliper adapters, make sure your wheel axle is fully seated in the dropouts with the brake rotor on the caliper mounting side. Mount the adapter with the engraved F or R facing towards the axle as shown. Tighten the adapter bolts to 6-8Nm of torque.

Make sure the pads are correctly positioned in the caliper, then place the caliper over the rotor with the bleed screw facing away from the wheel. Attach the caliper to the adapter using the supplied allen bolts. Loosely tighten the bolts so you can still move the caliper.

Pad Adjustment

With the caliper mounting bolts loose, fully depress the brake lever and keep the lever depressed so the caliper correctly centers itself on the rotor. With the brake lever depressed, tighten the caliper mounting bolts to 6-8Nm. Use a zip tie to fasten the brake hose to ensure it is out of the way.

In our next tutorial we will cover how to bleed the brake lines on this model.

Specialized bicycle post issue

Latest post 6 hours ago

Hi folks - this is my first post! The seat post on my year old Roll 3.0 is doing something annoying. It has a bit of play around the shiny collar just above the post clamp (see photo). I was told there is a plastic sheathing inside. Can this be fixed or is the seat post all one assembly?   IMG_3153.jpeg (Size: 58.61 KB / Downloads: 7) ...

interpreting serial numbers

Can anyone help me to interpret the serial serial numbers on my Kona Cindercone (first pic) and Gary Fisher Tasajara (second pic). I've spent quite a bit of time online without discovering much. Every article seems to advise you to look it up on one of the online lookup sites but then fails to link said sites. In case the pix don't appear in the order that I attached them, the one with the whi...

NBD: 1990 Brompton Mk2

Latest post 1 week ago

Just picked up this little classic 1990 Brompton Mk2 with Sturmey-Archer 3-speed hub. Needs some TLC but all the important bits seem to be in reasonable condition with no signs of substantial rust on frame, rear triangle, or hubs. Not only do I look forward to learning The Way of The Brompton, but this means I'll probably be buying more tools. WINNING!   WhatsApp Image 2024-05-11 at 1...

Was given a 2013 GT Karakoram 4.0. Fork moves fairly well but starting to squeak and needs service. MLO works. How do I take apart the MLO side? Lots of videos show the SR Suntour xct with a smooth blue lockout cap. It has a lockring and you have to pry it up evenly Not sure if this one is also a pry up. The notches look the same on both sides. Wrench fits on the spring/preload side and unscrews...

Hi, I am new to working on bicycle gears and am hoping to get some help determining if my new shifter has failed or if I just need to make some more adjustments. On the left side shifter, I am able to shift easily from 1st to 2nd, but when I tried to get it to go to 3rd, the chain would go up, but the shifter wouldn't lock into place. It would be great thumb exercise, but I prefer to fix it. I...

I'm slowly eliminated all LBSes in my area as options for servicing, LOL. The latest one has been struck off my list after watching, pained, their approach to removing the axle end caps from a hub with cartridge bearings. Suffice to say, I finally ordered a blind bearing puller kit and a bearing press kit. If you want something done properly, you have to do it yourself! Have you bought any nic...

I would like one that engages faster but don't want to spend the money for something like the DT Swiss hub, what recommendations do any of you have for a hub? Or i...

Modern rims crack at spoke holes

Latest post 1 month ago

Recently, I was in one of the local bike shops. Someone had brought a bike back to have the back wheel re-trued. There were actually cracks in the rim, originating from the spoke holes. I have had the same problem with my bike. In past decades you could buy a bike, and the wheels were strong. With modern rims, the aluminum is getting thinner and thinner. Now the rims crack. With heavy riders, a...
