squealing brakes

this is normally caused by

  • 1. the pads being worn down and the indicator is rubbing on the disc
  • 2. muck or a small stone stuck in between the pad and the disc.

removing the pads

  • 1 unbolt the caliper from the forks
  • 2 press the top pad down and the bottom pad up

here is picture of the calipers

  • older 89-97
  • newer 97-current
