Had same pronlem w/2000 Road King. Noise would go away when front brakes gently applied. Remove front calipers, remove pads and clean throughly to remove any dirt, sand, road grime or rocks. Road test to see if problem goes away. If not, jack it up enought to get front tire off the floor. Rotate fron tire. Should rotate smoothly w/no hard spots. If it does not you have a piston sticking in one caliper. Dual discs if front? Don't know which side is dragging? Start cold, go for a 10-15 minute ride not using front brake and feel each rotor comparing diff in temperature. Careful they can be darned hot. Anyway the warmest one is probably sticking. H-D has a repack kit w/special lube for the pistons. Lotsa Luck.

Front brake squeaking


Hi, Anonymous brake squeak is usually caused by excessive heat build up that produces a micro thin shiny glazed film on the brake pads and brake disc rotor that is harder than chicken lips and everyone knows chicken lips are harder than diamonds. Basically, the leading edge of the brake pads acts like the needle on a record player and the brake disc rotor as the record producing the infamous "SQUEAK MUSIC". You may have a pad in which the material was not blended evenly and you are encountering hard spots that are causing the squeak. Another possibility is that the pads are equipped with a wear sensor. This is a small metal tab attached to the pad that rubs on the rotor when the pad is worn to the minimum usable thickness The glaze can easily be removed by sanding the pads in a circular motion on a flat piece of metal, glass or concrete covered by a medium grit sandpaper until the shine is gone and raw brake pad material is visible. The brake disc rotor needs to be deglazed with a power tool, air or electric, that has a 2" sanding pad of Scotch Brite or medium to fine grit sandpaper until the shine is gone. Chamfering the leading and trailing edge of the brake pads at a 45-degree angle will act like a dull needle prolonging or totally eliminating the return Mr. Squeak.

My brakes are squeaking


Remove brake pads..front. Deglaze discs and pads and use created on the back of the pads.
Discs must be grease free.
When installed and sensor fitted, ensure sliders are free before pumping brake pedal a few times.
Road test and remember to bedcin brakes again for 500 miles

When i drive over 50k(australia) my front drivers wheel sqeaks and it does it too occasionally when i break. been happening for over 2 months so i rule out that its dirt in the breaks. what could it be...


wow first post ever for country, im GOBSMACKED !!!!
wheel ?steering wheel or tire/wheel.?

hard to find, they are, all squeaks.
first is to see if possible to do, no moving (big safety issue, yes)
bounce the corners of car hard, by hand.?
jack car up spin tires. by hand,
lever them below off ground, to see of balls are shot.
inspections here, look at every inch of suspenson and parts.

Brakes, i hope nothing breaks the brakes.
The brakes all squeak this is normal try lightly pressing the brake pedal, gently while moving slow, squeaking now is 100% normal and harmless. (the pads act like Guitar strings)
Use pad glue to halt it, or ignore it like me....
the pads have wear markers, they have this device that makes noise when pads get too thin, (look at em)
bad wheel bearings.
brake backing plate bent.
caliper guide pins rusted.
and lots of other things bad or just ok , old and making noise, like
suspension "A" arm bushing rusty, or stable bar , same.

moving noise is real hard to find.

Master cylinder 2003 road king


I would
1. Check brake pad thickness.
2. Check brake disk thickness.
3. Check and bleed the brakes, making sure you open and thighten all fittings in that system.
4. When you bleed the brakes, look for a good squirt when you hit the brakes with the top off.
5. If there isnt a squirt, rebuild the master cylinder.

I bet its one of those issues, but, do the easiest first.

2007 fatboy front disc brake makes a type of rattling noise when still cold but the noise goes away when front brake applied and disappears completley when bike/brakes warmed up after about 1km. Pad...


I your pads are only 2mm (0.080") thick, you are due for some new pads. They should be nearer 20mm thick without measuring the metal backing plate, both of them. Good reason for the rattle.

Good Luck

While coasting getting a "loud squeaking noise" almost like a scraping noise. When in reverse it is MUCH worse


This is probably the brake pad wear indicator telling you that it is time for brake pad replacement.This device scrapes on the rotor surface when the pads wear down to a certain thickness.

Sharp squeaking from rt rear wheel. Might be a bearing but it stops if i apply light brake pressure


your rear brakes need servicing!!Those sqeaking noises are from metal pins within the brake pads. They touch the rotor surface when the pads are worn. Usually when brakes are applied they tend to silence the squeal. Inspect the rear brakes for pad thickness. Hopefully this helpd!!

Do i need to replace front and back brake pads when they start squeaking?


You will need to inspect the brakes first, remove the wheels and check the thickness of the pads, if they are all wearing thin and the warning (squeak) indicators are touching yes replace them...
