Lyndall pads squeaking

I had the same problem with my Dyna, so I switched back to Chinese pads. Figured I'd give it another shot because of all the rage.

Any ideas how to get rid of the Lyndall squeal?

Mine went away on its own after a few thousand miles. Did you use brake grease?

No I never do, nor does the manual say to. I can give it a shot.

Any type preferred?

I fixed mine by taking them off and throwing them in the trash. Mine squeaked from day one no matter what I tried it didn't work. I replaced them with EBC for 1/2 the price.

Guess I can give it a shot and let it roll. See what happens. I rebuilt the calipers when I installed the new pads. So it's not that. Lever feel is much firmer after rebuild though.

Take the pads out and use fine sandpaper to clean the brake pad friction surface, not the rotor. When you re-install them use the brake silicone on the backs of the pads and on the pins along with where the pads contact the caliper. Just use a light coating of the brake silicone.

As much as I hate crap made by Hop Sing, I've had great luck with Chinese pads. Three sets for 30 bucks. No sqeaul, stop great, and last.

Thanks rlaf75 I'll give it a shot!

Permatex synthetic disc brake lube is what I use.
Rear brake squeal is a common problem that is why HD replacement rear brake pads kits comes with disc brake lube.
I used brake pads from D2moto with good luck but I still used brake lube on the rear brake pads.
The brake lube can dry out over time and the rear brakes may start to squeak again so just pull and clean the pads and re-apply brake lube.

So you rebuilt the cals, you know the mechanic's and the short travel to contact with the rotor, the newer Lyndall pads have a heavy coating on back I've had to grind/file some for fit, fine lube the pins (teflon nevrsize is what i've used very sparlinly), ebc are IMO (non-organic) are harder on the rotor and keeps it clean..damn good pads.....clean the rotor by wiping on brake cleaner use fine scotch-brite/00 steelwool back and forth (not circles or round round), solvent clean again....Disclaimer iam not the one one doing yours
