Question about 2005 Suzuki Boulevard S40

1 Answer

Brakes squealing, and I'm broke!

Hi, just bought my first motorcycle - a 2006 Suzuki S40 (LS650 cruiser, now called 'boulevard'). Everything seems to run fine sofar, except the front brake, which squeals. Also, the brake fluidreservoir on the handlebars does not look like it has anything in it. The service manual just says ''see a mechanic''.

I can't afford to hash out $100 to get this problem fixed by aprofessional who might end up ripping me off. Im no expert mechanic,but I can figure things out with some help. Can anyone tell me how tofix this myself?

Thanks for taking a kind of stupid question from a noob.

Hi .... The lack of brake fluid is an indication of a leak and/or low/worn brake pads. Both need to be looked at on a safety level. Take off the front brake caliper (two 10mm bolts, 14mm head)and look at the pads, if they're worn replace them (£20 or $20 at the most). When you push back the caliper pistons you might find you've no need to top-up the fluid. If you ignore this the next thing to go will be the disc (lots of $s) and/or an accident. Check the pads and if they need changed I'll 'talk' you through it.

Squealing on acceleration


Very easily could be rust and /or corrosion on brakes that is slightly rubbing when no brake applied. Would stop when pressure is applied when brake engaged. Should wear off very quickly as the brakes heat upon engagement. May be I said.
