  • Honda CB300r

    Sometimes when I'm riding I hear a noise from near my rear break peg. The noise is very weird like chuuuu and cheee and I checked and played with the break peg as well as the break itself and it all seemed fine and made no noise when moved manually with my hand. However, during rides sometimes very randomly the noise would start.

      Wash the rear brake area properly & check the clearance of the brake pads to the disk and how much life is left in the brake pad. Also check how much brake fluid is left.
      Can't think of anything else that can go wrong.

        What's a brake PEG? You mean brake pad, right?

        Anyhow, that screeching noise is because of friction between caliper pistons and rear side of brake pad. You need to remove the brake pads, apply a good quality grease (not that cheap black one) on the piston's rim which touches the brake pad. But be careful, apply as little as possible, you don't want grease melting and dripping on the disc rotor!

        I had this exact problem with rear disc brake in my 2010 karizma ZMR, I had to re-apply grease in 1-2 years or after swapping new pads.

        You don't need to go to the service center for such a minor job, you can get it done by a local mechanic also.
