Squeeking Brakes

I have new reasently fittet standars discs and new Brembo pads on my front. The brake performance is very good but they squeeks anoingly loud every time i brake normaly. Slightly or full braking there is no problem.
I think i've heard about a spacer of some kind to put between the pad and the piston.

PS: Wayne Rooney, have you seen all the blond girls we have in DK how about a Danish citicenship?

His Grandparents are Irish, so we have second dibs.
Anyhow, you can use copper grease on the BACK of the pad to stop that messing.
Maybe there are other products for doing that, but I don't know them.

Re: Squeeking Brakes

You may find this will happen due to the harder compounds being used...try the copperslip but living with it may be the only option. Presume they are nice and flat into the calipers with all clean edges?

Re: Squeeking Brakes

yes copper slip on all the surfaces that run in the frame and also on the backs of the pads,if it hasnt already got them file a shamfer on the top and bottom edges of all four pads. this free hand drawing may help.......then again maybe not.
