There is only one correct way to attach the release bearing to the fork. The fork has a leaf spring clip riveted to the underside of the tangs. In order for the release bearing to pivot properly, the clip must be inserted into the fork groove on the release bearing collar. Improper installation of the spring clip into the fork groove can cause slipping, hard pedal, and release problems.
