Question about 2004 Harley Davidson VRSCB V-Rod

1 Answer

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

Loud noise rear driver side tire


If it is really loud rubbing sound, its either brake pads or could be your rotors. Typically these do not wear out at the same time. Defintely have them checked out, but before going anywhere, make sure to check your brake fluid level as it may be low on fluid that is necessary to apply the brakes and their functionality is dependent upon it.

Brakes are making a loud sound. How can i tell if it needs brake fluid?


Check the reservoir under the hood.

The brakes making noise has nothing to do with fluid level, though.

There's a good chance your brakes are glazed from overheating or they are in need of replacement. There are sometimes pieces of metal which rub the rotor and make a loud squealing noise when you press the brake - they're wear indicators.

Brakes are making loud grinding noise when slowing down to stop or on an incline


Ok, it could be a few things, 1. bad break caliper. 2. if you have ceramic breaks, it could be a cracked brake pad, and if they are not ceramic they can still be cracked. 3. if you drive a lot then it could be that you need new breaks again.. 4. also have your back breaks checked along with the front ones..

The vibration is caused by the rotors being warped. Remove the front tires and check the front brake pads. Replace if needed. This is a pretty straight forward job. The rotors are "fall off" rotors and you won't need anything special tool wise.
