Is it possible to turn down the rear brake rotor on a MOTORCYCLE

All brake rotors have a minimum thickness. Its just a matter of finding the information. To much machining could cause a high pitch harmonic noise or worse total and complete failure of disk brake. I would not advise to do such a thing. But hey needs must, good luck

Are the rear wheel axle spacers the same lenght on a 99 FLSTC? I am getting rear brake noise only in a turn and my pads are in good shape.

As far as I know, the "spacers" you're talking about are actually "races" for the oil seals in the rear wheel hub to run on and they are the same length. It depends on the noise your brake is making as to the severity of the problem. If it's a small noise, it's probably common. Your rear wheel hub is set up to have just a bit of "end play" in the bearings. It must have this end play in order to prevent the wheel from locking up as the bearings heat up. It is set by a shim stack inside the hub. Due to this "end play", when you lean into a turn, the wheel moves a bit. Since disc brakes keep the pads against the rotor with a slight pressure, you will hear a rubbing noise. You could take the bolts that hold the rear brake caliper on and make sure they have a bit of synthetic brake lubricant on them so that the caliper moves in and out easily, floats so to speak. Also, if you have gotten any contaminant on the brake rotor like wax or something, this will cause the brake pads to squeal and they may even do it when you go into a turn. If the noise is really loud, do not ride the bike until you have it professionally checked out.

Good Luck

Got a 2004 Vrscb and it makes a loud scuffing sound like the front brakes are rubbing. When I press the front brake, the noise stops. Then begins again after I depress brake. Any suggestions?

Since disc brakes are designed to have the pad in constant contact with the rotor, this in not an unusual problem. Especially if you are running the sintered metal pads that give the best braking.

Remove the caliper and the pads, Lightly sand the pads and clean the rotor with brake parts cleaner. If this doesn't stop the noise, the only thing I can tell you to do is change to "organic" pads. They don't last as long or stop as well but usually they are quiet.

Good luck

Check your trailer connector, you have a short circuit between the brake and tail /marker lamps. or water in your tail/brakelamp. Also check both brake switches, for water or corrosion.

Back Rotor & brake replacement for 1500cc intruder have Question

>< Try this link for used parts. I would not use Aluminum rotors. To stop the squeak I would try a different brake pad. But you can take the pads off and file off the leading edge chamfer it a bit with a rasp. Not a lot but give it a 45 deg. both of the leading edges.

Grinding noise when pushing the rear brake

Whilst riding ,try pushing the brakes with the clutch in and if you still hear the noise it will most likely be your brake pads(possibly worn to metal) or the discs themselves.

Ticking noise in rear of 650 V star

lift rear end ensure wheel is straight, chain will tick if not running true. next step remove chain and turn wheel by hand, listen for noise, wheel should spin freely when spun, like once or twice around before it stops. sometimes also ticking sound from drum brake is just a loose lever from the brake pedal to drum. pads will not tick. to be really safe, remove wheel and take apart.

Squeeky back break

could the pads have already worn down so fast?  has anyone had this problem?The higher the humidity the more noise mine makes not so loud as to be a squeal but noticeable. I kind of doubt they are worn out. You may have a shoe thats glazed that would do it also. The linings may need to be lapped down at the edges. Any drum brake rear bike squeals if the edges are higher than the center found that out on a Suzuki GT 250 I had 25 years ago. ,,,
