    my hydro disc brakes squeel when the bike is tilted to the right rather annoying any ideas what it is? do you think cleaning the rotor with with something might help?

    maybe a loose rear hub?

    maybe just a bit of frame flex?

    maybe a warped rotor?

    maybe something like the wheel is not in tight or slightly in the wrong place?

    all guesses im afraid. 😕

    simply cleaning it probably wont help. if possible check all of the above.

    Same thing happened to mine when I switched to organic pads, try metalic ones.

    cleaned the rotor with brake and clutch cleaner worked a treat and no more noise wheyhey!! i think either the rotor or pads were covered in dust

    cool. as you mentioned it squealed only when tilted to the right i wrongly guessed that it was a different problem. to me, it sounded worse than it was obviously. 😯
