Bought a new carbon fork from Spa
Brake rub has disappeared
But, I have had to move the position of my front light, so it now is fixed to my stem, ( under hanging it). Previously crown mounted.
( I also run full guards, if that makes a difference)

Thanks for all who contributed

IMHO if the old fork has become more flexible that it was when it was new, you have just dodged a bullet there; a change to 'more flex than before' means that the old fork was almsot certainly damaged and/or on the way to failure.

cheers
