It may not really be a problem with the brakes. It may just be that the brake surface is dirty. Try giving it a good clean and dry it off with a clean rag. The pads may have pick up some oilly crud off the road etc.


i have cleaned them i shall let you know if it worked after i get back from riding later on cheers

Hi there, Best thing to do really is try to burn/bake the pads to get rid of the top layer of the pad. I'm not quite sure on how to go about this but i have heard that you stick the pad's in the oven for 10 minute's or so and then while they are bakeing to scrub the rotor with hot soapy water and leave to dry.

About bedding the disc in slap some wet sloppy mud all over it and race down a hill holding the brake on shud sort it out a charm :)

Hope i have been of some help!
