  • Girling Rear Brakes

    Was wondering if anyone could help me with what I have found out is a more common problem than I realized. I have a terrible squeal from my rear brakes. I have tried different pad material and am running ceramic now. They all worked fine for awhile, but eventually started to squeal.

    Are they glazed? Have you tried sanding the pads a bit? Mine do that as well...reckon I'm getting my pads too hot, and riding the brake.
    It's not "derailed", as long as the last post relates to the post above it...it's just on a different rail, heading into a more interesting direction

      Yeah...I end up doing that but after a few rides they start all over again.

      I have paid more attention and try to stay off the brakes as much as possible but still happens, I was told it was a problem with the older caliper and should upgrade,but hate to get rid of the original if there is a fix.

        Same thing happens to me, I reckon I'll be watching this thread with you.

          Isnt there some sort of goo that you slap on the back of the pad between it and the piston supposed to fix that?

            Yeah,,,they had some at the auto parts store they use on autos. Tried it but still didn't fix the problem...seems like everything I try works for a while.

              Make sure your rear wheel is perfectly straight when mounted.

              Make sure the caliper slider pins/barrel is lubed and moves freely. If one moves easier then another, it cocks the caliper sideways and the brakes can squeel.

              Clean your rotor off with simple green and a 3m scrubbie, or sandpaper and then carb cleaner or brake clean. If it gets loaded with dirt and dibris it can cause squeeling too.

              If you sand it, do it by hand and no machines. Spinning the wheel with the bike jacked up and running the paper on the planes works good.

              By roughing the rotor surface, the pads will be forced to rebed into the rotor.

              Apply anti-squeel to the backs of the pads, once you clean off any existing goo that's on there.

                That's what I was waiting for, thanks Richard...

                I thought mine had to do with the wheel, but I've had that thing off more than once since the wreck. I'll try the sanding the rotor deal, my bike is always f*ckin dirty anyway.

                    Thanks Dave, I had used the extra fine sandpaper on the rotor and it would help for awhile..was thinking of just getting a kit for the caliper...will try all this. Really appreciate it!

                      I am running a kevlar pad on my bike and it does not squeal much any more. Seems to only make a noise after it has sit for a few days and then only for the initial couple of stops.

                          By chance, are the pads you have on now Sintered pads or OEM pads? Sintered pads do squeel, as they're hard and won't ease up until they get hot. In reality, they're not really for casual street use.

                              No..I have ceramic pads on now...did have the sintered on originally..they really sounded off.
