I have been riding with some of those Harley guys and they have given me a hard time about this squeal. Please advise on how to fix ths problem.

Good idea Pastor T.

Are you still on the original pads or have they possibly been replaced with aftermarket? One thing to do with squealing brakes is to deglaze them. Get on a low traffic road and get to about 50MPH and get on the brake fairly hard to a full stop then ride a 1/2 mile or so and do it again and then one more time.

:cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1::D:D:D:cooldevil::cooldevil::cooldevil::action::waving:, i agree with dave, also helps to scuff the disk as well.

Brake dust will be causing the squeal. Best fix is to pull the pads and blow the dust off and then put some anti squeal or copper grease on the metal back part of the pads and the edges where the metal contacts the calliper.

You are correct Al, mine is a quick fix with no work involved.

Thanks to everyone that replied. I ill try these options this weekend. As far as stopping riding with the Harley guys I will do my best to quit, is there any medicine I can take to help the problem?

The only meds I know that works is for them to buy goldwings, :dude:Buckleys taste awful and will not work.:shock: Heck, just fix the pads like said above.:waving:
