Clunking from brakes

Post by Kingy220 » Mon Dec 25, 2017 8:54 pm

Merry Christmas.

I've taken the car up north for Christmas visiting the folkes, it seems to have developed a clunking noise from the rear passenger wheel area. The noise seems to be speed related and goes when I apply the brakes. If anyone has any ideas I'm all ears.

Rgds, Simon

What you been drinking :P
Could be the hand brake mech has come adrift or dropped a brake shoe.

Top right hand side of the post, left hand one of the 4 boxes, looks like a pen.

Slightly loose wheel nuts? I've experienced this once after a trackday. :oops:

Rear spring snapped would be worth a quick visual check.

Also just seen your location, If you see another Sapphire Z4MC around Stratford town it'll be me, welcome to the club. :thumbsup:

Thanks for all the replies, I've had a good look this morning and can't find or see anything loose/broken. Think I've got a brake pad that's moving around a little.

Hi aarsavage, thought I was the only mc in the village :D

Sticking caliper maybe?

Turns out one of the brake pads was too small, even though they were a straight replacement for the old pads.

Thanks for comments/advise
