Creaking New Brakes..

Hi All,

I have had all new pads on my EL XR6 and new rotors n the back... But my brakes creak when slowing down... is this common...??

Should I take it back to the place that did the brakes..??

Take it back to the place that did the brakes.
From memory, there is a paste they can use to correct the noise.

Re: Creaking New Brakes..

A bevel on pad where it comes in contact with rotor helps and some anti squeel paste that is put between pad and calliper..Some times a stainless steel shim / plate between caliper piston and pad helps also...

Re: Creaking New Brakes..

the best thing for new pads is a bit of silicone on the back against the caliper trust me no noise what so ever

Im a friend of Bertis's....

Re: Creaking New Brakes..

I agree with EBXR8420. If they look fairly shiny, scrape them on level concrete to take the shine off them. Then make a chanfer/bevel on the pads where the disk would first make contact with pad, and that will fix it up.

I've just replaced my warped discs with slotted, retained the old 10,000klms pads, did the above, and they still work like new.

Re: Creaking New Brakes..

If they rumble I could almost bet they're well and truley warped..Imo get some dba slotted. fit them yourself for around $200.00..Plus seals..Some fluid to drain the old crapp out...
