Is there a cure for squeeky brakes? I have an 1100 with 21K. The disc's look great. I took off the pads, lightly sanded them and re-installed them. Didn't help. Any suggestions.

Silicone Spray behind the pads and you can file the pads leading edge down to a 45 degree angile !:baffled:

Copper grease on the back and edges of the pads (the steel parts) also cures this.

Congratulations on getting the squeak stopped orbit. It is just too embarrassing when your Wing squeaks to a stop beside a Harley.

I just pulled my rear calipers apart and found a lot of gunk, grit and grime. I cleaned everything very carefully and applied a thin layer of lube.the padsmove around like should be. I also cleaned and lubed the sleeves so that the calipers would move freely. What a difference 20 minutes, a little brake cleaner and a little lube made. No more brake noise. I will be doing the front brakes this weekend.

All - thanks for all the hints. I took mine apart again, left off the little sliver clip on deal and added marine anti-seize to the back of the pads. No more noise.

Since I'm changing the rear tire I might have to follow the groups advise here to get mine to stop make noise at slow speeds. :jumper:
