Default if it sounds like metal on metal

it's probably because it is. Front pads were great,Thankfully. However. Rear pads -not so much. New rear rotors are an easy install on the 100. I kept the old pads from the last go round. I alway's question keeping the old parts, glad I did. This time it's paid off. Old parts in until I have time to fix it right.

Just wanted to share my story. When my father-in-law bought his 80, he said the rear brakes were making a lot of noise. We brought it over to my house to investigate, it turns out the whole inside brake pad on the right rear was missing and the caliper piston was pushing on the rotor. The piston was about a 1/4 chewed into so it had been doing it for a while. New pads, rotors, calipers, and about 500 dollars later it was fixed.

yep, had a brake pad on the 80 start squealing just after I got it because it had been installed backwards and the squealer didn't work, so new rotor for me too.

When I first got my 80, I remember hearing some noise from the rear tires, did not sound like what I was used to hearing when the pads were going. I put it off, until one day driving down the alley behind my house, I see smoke coming from the right rear tire!The pad was mostly gone, and the heat had melted the brake line, so brake fluid was spraying over the overheated caliper and rotor! Luckily Oleg had a spare caliper and rotor. Expensive first lesson!


Fast forward to last weekend...had been feeling more than hearing a slight metal on metal feeling at the very end of a slow stop. Assumed it was pads somewhere. In the snow I lifted the front and pulled the tire, pads look great! In the snow again, lifted the rear and pulled the tire, the pads look brand new! Guess I was a little too cautious this time.

I was very relieved to pull the front pads and find they were in great shape. Installed new front pads anyway. The horrible metal sound was getting worse. Got new rear rotors and pads. All done in under and hour in the driveway in the snow. $170 total non-oem and my parking brake is much better too after a little adjustment. Spent another hour cleaning my 18 year old rims.
