:headshake :headshake :headshake My rear brakes are squeaking like hell I need help!!! I just dont know why they are squeaking at low or high speed. Do they just need cleaning or did i not brake them in right?
Did you prep your rotors before changing the pads out?egsxr600 said::headshake :headshake :headshake My rear brakes are squeaking like hell I need help!!! I just dont know why they are squeaking at low or high speed. Do they just need cleaning or did i not brake them in right?
Rotors should be prepped by either wetsanding or bead blasting. By doing so you are giving the new pads a clean surface to bed-in. Also, if you get heat spots on your rotors (common in track riding) you can also just use a little wetsand to get them off. Some guys will even lightly sand their brake pads to clean them off to re-bed them.Hammy said:My Ducati did the same thing. I'd cleaned the rotor with acetone and alcohol, still made noise. I replaced the pads with HH+ pads, problem solved. :thumbup:
:lol: I'll take her, I need a new race bike for next season. Don't give up, it's either the rotor or pads. Either way a cheap fix really. Rear rotor on ebay is cheap $25-$35 and pads are $25-$40 depending on brand and you only need one set for the rear anyways. By the way, what brand are they?egsxr600 said:Well i know what your saying about the singing niose.. but its squealing still. I would like to just replace the rotor also but it cost some money :headshake . I think i'll just give my bike away :thumbup: :headscrat :hmmm:
