Strangs sound when applying front brake
« on: 30 August, 2006, 07:59:25 PM »
When I apply the froint brake, i hear some kind of buzzing sound. The sound only oocurs when in motion and without the ABS kicking in.
I can't say i heard it in the beginning, but then perhaps I was too charmed and impressed by the overall performance and agility I just did not notice.

Does somebody else have this as well?

The sound I think you are hearing is the noise made by th pads gliding over a drilled disc.
Some brakes tend to be louder than others, but as long as they work fine there shouldn't be a problem.

This noise was very prominent on my Blacbird, can't hear it so much on the CBF but it is there.

Hope this helps.

I noticed something like you describe when I first had the bike but it has either gone away or I've got used to it and don't feel it anymore   :confused: :ats2508_cheers:

I think all disc brakes make a buzzing bee sound when the pads touch the discs, no problem with that.

cant say i noticed anything unusal from the cbf brakes, but the fronf brake on my previous bike BMW850r did make the noise you describe on hard  braking.  Guess some do and some dont.

Cheers
