Squeaking front brake 81 gl1100.

Postby OU81288 » Sun Oct 03, 2010 11:29 pm



I am looking for solutions to front brake squeak on my bike. I have read everything from rebuilding the calipers to riding with the front brake on to burn off glaze. I am wondering how you guys have dealt with this on your own bikes.

Thanks.

Is the shim still in the caliper?? if not they squeak. Use belt sander to resurface the pads? They are anti-squeak solvents.

FAIR WINDS,
