SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEALLLL !!!!

HOLY THAT'S LOUD !!!

I put new pads on front and rear breaks probably just a little over 500 miles ago. Yesterday the back when off the chart SQUEAL !!!!

I don't remember the brand. I don't even remember what I paid, but they weren't the bottom of the line pads. Somewhere in the middle.

I took them off and sanded the rotor a little and then ran them again. It helped for about 10 stops - - then SQUEEEEEEAL again. So then I took the chance of riding them lightly for about a mile at about 50mph. Thought maybe I could burn off something that was on them. Didn't do anything.

Give me some clues. It's friggin embarrassing.

What bike is it?
If it's a GSXR I don't recommend sintered pads on the rear for that very reason.
I usually recommend the EBC organic for the rear. Plus a side benefit is it's less prone to lock up.

tip: dont do this again! unless you want warped rotors and lots of burnt brake fluid.

The squeal is not coming from the rotor and the pad contact, I believe its between the pistons and the brake pad. Try applying some brake quiet to the back side of the pad.

Yup, it' s a GSXR.
I had to burn some grease off my old POS car rotors once and I fried the out of the pads . . . . . but no more grease . . . ha
Well, I'll tear into them and try adding something to quiet them. MAN are they loud!!!

+1

This would be guess too. Get some BRAKE quiet from autozone.

What brand/kind of pads are they?

My brake were making a little noise before I pulled everything apart and cleaned and applied caliper grease. They're like new brakes now and make zero noise.

Make sure you clean the pins and apply grease to them also and not just to the back of the pads. And what ever you do don't get grease on the rotors or the contact surface of the pads.

Yeah, All I did was dust them off and slap them back together.
Pretty sure they were EBC. But the fronts don't make a sound.
I'll take them all apart an clean them up and grease them.

Should I add some oil to the rotor???? LOL

I heard putting Armor All on the tires is bad kuz it runs off onto the road and causes damage and then our taxes go up to fix those spots and plus - the rain washes it into the ditch and kills the flowers and little bugs get poisoned and suffer and it soaks into the gound water and then we have to treat it more before we can drink it or give it to our pets so they don't get Japanese spiral menengitis and then our water bill goes up.

But I only read that on the web. Not sure if it quite all true.

How do you break in pads if you don't just put them on the bike and go? I've never hear of that. The fastest I've applied them at since putting them on is probably about 75 just briefly to make traffic manuvers on the freeway. I haven't been going BTTW and draggin knee.

Otherwise just city traffic. I ride to work almost every day.

i think he means "bedding in" the pads. which means once u have installed the new pads you go down the road and do a few stops from 60- 40- 20 without getting your brakes too hot and warping them. all you are really doing if getting the new brake pad material on the rotors.

oh-
Yeah - then i did the "bedding in" kinda by accident. Even in my car I do a certain amount of "test" stopping just to make sure everything seems right before I go racing down the freeway. I do the same on the bike with any mechanical issue like that. If I put on a chain, I cruise around a little just to see if it passes the "looks like she's a workin Bubba" test.

They WORK fine. Very good actually - - just squeal like NUTS !!
