    brake squeal

    I've got a new sv650, now with 1500 km on it. When I use the brakes at slow speed I sometimes get a squeal out of the rear brake. The guys at the shop said they just need to be broken it...but isn't 1500 km enough? any ideas? It's getting a little bit annoying

    Stop using the back brake?

    Suzuki has a bit of a rear squeal in some of their bikes. The torque on the rear brake bar bolts needs to be adjusted OR your pads are a bit dirty from rain. Pressure wash the caliper area.

    if that doesn't fix the problem, chamfer the pads.
