I still have the old shoes, so I'll try putting them back in next weekend (still working long hours) and see what happens. To me the old shoes look identical to the new ones, but maybe I'm missing something. The part numbers check out, but perhaps the shoes were in the wrong box. 🤔
If the old shoes work out I'll just leave them in. The old shoes were still good, but as long as I had the rear wheel off I wanted to have the experience of changing them.
I still think the short travel distance of the brake rod seems wrong - I think my local dealer has a C50 in stock and if so I'll drop by and see if the brake rod moves as little as mine does. But again I didn't touch anything other than the parts pertaining to removing the rear wheel, so I don't know how I could have messed something up front.
Will keep in touch and let everyone know what's going on.
