  1. hi all.

    i recently took apart the front brake and cleaned them but the stilll squeek annoyingly when i apply very light pressure.

    any idea?

  2. just oil them...

  3. They are new pads no?

    If so you probably just need to give them time to bed in. Either that or they might be a little out of alignment.

    But these are all VERY wild accusations......best to get some more knowledgable to give you real info.
  4. They are probably glazed.
    Remove pads
    sand back the glazed bits replace and take it easy on them for the first 100 kms.
    You'll be surprised how well they bite when they have bedded in.

    If all else fails there is some anti squeal you can get from car/bike shops.
    Follow instructions.
