New Lyndall pads

Just installed gold pads in all 3 calipers this morning. On my way in to work the front has a bit of a squeal to it... (only under braking) This is my first touring bike and first Harley. I'm familiar with "bedding" pads on cars.. Do motorcycle pads need to have the same procedure done?

Thanks

I just had Lyndall Z+ pads installed with my Agitator wheel set-up. I put a polished rotor on the rear and am getting an intermittent squeal at the end of my stop. Kinda annoying. Not sure if I can blame it on the pad, the rotor, or both. No squeals from the front though.

According to the literature that came with my pads, there was no break-in/bedding required.

Mine squeal like a SOB. I'm about to trash them and try EBC pads. I heard they work great.

If you are getting a squeal use some pad lubricant on the back of the pads. You can get it any auto parts store or at the Harley dealer. That being said mine don't squeal but some people attribute this to the fact that the metal part of the pad is painted.

I tried this and did nothing. Still squealing. The squealing is coming from the pad material. I can deglaze the face of the pad and the noise stops for a few miles and then comes back and that tells me that the problem lies with the pad material. I have tried to call and email with no reply. Great customer service!!!!!

I can't tell you about Lyndall, but I had Performance Machine calipers & pads on the front & rear of my FXR. The fronts squealed like Justine Bieber in jail after BUBA had his way. I'd deglaze the front & that worked for a minute. I never did solve the problem. That was the first & last time with any aftermarket brakes/pads. OEM works just fine.

+1 on disc brake lube. I use Permatex synthetic disc brake lube and it takes care of the problem.

My rear did the same. After a few hundred miles, they seem to be quiting down.

I used the brake quite on all pads and the rear still squealed a bit under braking.
