EBC pads/Rear Brake rotor-2004 model
During my 36K service I changed the rear pads to EBC. The bike now has 52K and somewhere around 10K ago I began to notice a slight rear brake squeal. It occurs only at almost stopped speed and it is not a steady squeal, rather an intermittent one. Over the last couple weeks it has become increasingly louder so today I re-installed the old stock pads to see if it make a difference. It did, no squeal what so ever. (As an aside the stock pads never did make a sound. I changed them because the were nearly worn out.)
While working on the pad change out, I noticed the rotor was loose (somewhat) and I dont recall it being loose or sloppy before.
So I have a few questions:
1. What would cause the EBC pads to start squealing in the first place and what can I do? I really dont want to trash them as they have plenty on miles left in them. I'll have to do something soon because the old OEM pads aren't going to get me much further.
2. Is the rotor supposed to be a bit loose?
