I've got a massive squeal and sometimes it vibrates through the frame when i'm using my rear brake.I've checked all the usual places and everything is all good and tight with no oil or grease where it shouldn't be.The brakes are juicy 3's and the pads are sintered and about 2 months old (changed my front ones at the same time and they're fine ).I'm sure some of you good people out there must have had this problem in the past so any answers will be gratefully received. thanks
This not what you want , but some discs just do that
Could try some pads as its easy to do
Or copper slip on back of the pad
Are you sure they are clean
Caliper alignment and pads centered ?
i had the same problem with my bike since it was new 2yrs ago, no matter what i tried it would squeal with sintered pads, so i changed to a softer compound pad hasnt squealed since ,some bikes and rotors dont like the hard compound pads, and at £18 for four sets of the softer pads i dont care if they wear down a bit quicker
I aligned my caliper properly and guess what ? NO SQUEAK AND VIBRATION !! So a big thanks for the suggestion
Copperslip behind the pads, loosen all bolts, get a mate pulling the lever as hard as poss while you tighten up. No more squeal....
