Thumbs down Howling Brakes

Morning - This issue all started after having a rear tire installed.

Brought it home from the dealer and found that when coasting to a stop and barely touching the brake pedal they howl (not squeak).

Had it back at the dealer and of course they said they couldn't find anything wrong and that all Can-AM' experience some kind of brake noise or another.

It was fine until the rear tire change - is there any correlation between it and my brake howls?

Thanks in advance

Good Day, Rick, it is true that the brakes on the Spyders squeal and that being said here is what you want to do.

First, Do you have many miles on the bike, enough that new pads may be needed? If the answer is yes then change before the disk is destroyed if no follow along and maybe I can help.

Most of the time the squeal
is caused by a pad not moving at the same time as the other, reason, guide rods. Guide rods will develop a wear pattern after a few miles the wear is slight but if disturbed the pads will not move in the same manner as before.

If you do your own work the fix is simple and very cheap, If you must take the bike back demand that the tech review/renew the guide rods. You brought the bike in for a new tire not a new problem, tell them to fix it!

Rick, I was curious to see if you have the howling problem fixed? I changed my rear tire yesterday and after a short ride of a couple of miles I have the same thing happening.
