Squeaky brakes and clutch noise...OK?
So a couple issues I'm having on my '14 ABS.
When creeping into my parking spot, or up to a stop light, my rear brake makes a metallic squeak with a slight shudder in the pedal. It only happens when it's slightly depressed, like right when the brake light is activated.
I've removed the caliper and put a thin film of anti-seize on the retaining pin, main pin, and the metal springs which retain the pads. Didn't help, but I didn't apply any to the rear of the pads.
Anyone ever have this issue?
Another noise I'm new to is the clutch basket making a bit of a whirring noise when the bike is in neutral and the clutch lever is let go of. It's just there while I sit at idle. As I pull the lever, it goes away.
The bike does have a slight jump when shifting down into gear, but nothing crazy. Clutch cable adjusted to service specs 2-3mm
My old yamaha seca had zero clutch noise, so maybe I'm just not used to it.
Any ideas on either?
