Small Rear Brake Squeak

Post by goodoni » Tue May 14, 2013 5:32 am

To All,
Over the past winter, I replaced the front and rear brakes pads.
Recently, at very low speeds my rear brake has a slight squeak.
I measured the front and rear calipers and they were well withing the tolerances.
Is this as simple as hitting both sides of the calipers with some emery cloth or is there something else I should try?
Thanks for the input.

Ride Safe,

It depends on what is squeaking! Try the emery cloth first and see if that does it. If not, then start hunting it down. You'll have the left bag off anyway to get to the pads, so you can get a better idea of where it's coming from.
