Question about 2003 Suzuki AN 400 Burgman

2 Answers

One of the pads on my front brakes is digging into the disk plate. there is still plenty of pad left so i think something hard must have gotten stuck inside somehow. can anyone give me some advice on how to get the wheel off and change the pads? i am technically inclined but i have never worked on my scooter before.

Brakes fail traveling at15/20m makes a grinding sound, but brakes ok at speed.


A grinding sound usually suggests metal to metal contact but, as you say, you have changed the pads and disks.

What springs to mind is that that the brake backing plate - the metal disk on the inboard side - are being touched by the spinning disk, or the noise is being caused by a driveshaft or bearing.

However, there are other possibilities. Are there any shims in your braking system? Shims hold the pads in place and stop squeal/rattle.

It also could be that the pads are not being fully released from the disk when the brake pedal is pressed. Depending on your calliper set up it may be something as simple as a slide that is sticking and needs cleaning.

Brake pads are released from the disk by what is nothing more than the spinning of the disk 'knocking' things back. Assisted by rubber sleeves on 'slide pins'. Something may be sticking and need cleaning and a smear of copper grease added.

It would be too easy to say that you have a vacuum leak (or internal seal) problem in the brake servo. A servo problem usually results in a 'hard' brake pedal at all speeds. You don't have this problem.

It may well be that your brakes feel 'spongy' at low speeds because the pads are not being shoved back from the disk because of sticking slides (depending on your system).

It also may be that the pistons in your calliper are sticking.

You obviously can work on cars and use tools - consider overhauling your brake callipers (look on Ebay for overhaul kits) but bear in mind that doing this also means you have to bleed the brakes.

How to stop squeaking breaks on my 2007 nissian maximum


Brake squeak can be from a wear indicator which is a metal clip that touches the brake disc when the pads wear thin. If there is plenty left on the brake pads removes them and cover the BACK and the top and bottom bit of the pad where it meets the housing/caliper with copper grease. NEVER APPLY where the pad front meets the disc

Grinding or rubbing noise in left front wheel, mostly when braking . What do i look for?


Grinding is a sign on brakes in need of replacement. Your pads are worn through and now the metal backing plate of the pad is grinding up against the rotor. Replace the pads and rotors asap to prevent further damage.

Sqealing front brakes 2005 super glide 1500 miles


Usually when a brake squeals it's because someone has gotten wax or something on the rotor. The only way to stop the squeal is to install new pads and clean the rotor with brake cleaner prior to installing the new pads. Sometimes you even have to "break the glaze" on the rotor.

You can try taking the pads out and sanding them real good. Then do the stuff I said to do above. Might work.

Good Luck

Just pd 404.00to have front brakes roters Is that too much?Thank you.


Yes, You should have paid about $50 each for new rotors , max, and about $100 for a complete brake job. Unless you have 4 wheel drive or something exotic, and your truck is fairly new, you could of had the rotors turned, for about $10 each if they needed it. ,,,,My wife went to a shop once for something and they told her that her brake pads were worn down to 3mm, and of course, most people will think, 3mm!!! Oh my, get them fixed, but she came home and told me what happened, and I said, 3mm, let's see, .120" , that is about half worn of a .250" brake pad, plenty of miles left there, they just wanted money, they make a lot of money on brake jobs.

My 2001 gmc Jimmy is making a metal on metal grinding sound in the front left wheel area when I touch the brakes. Do u think it's brake pads or worse? And how hard is it to fix?


If the sound is barely noticable its the squeekers letting you know you need new brakes in a few more hundred miles or so.When you let your foot off the brake the sound disappears quickly doesn't it? If so its time for new pads
