Re: Tyres

I also have Heidenau 400 x 18 and like them but I have not tried anything else. Wet weather grip seems good. Wet weather brakes is a different story.

Re: Brake pad rattle

Update: I recently applied some Disc Brake Quiet, that I purchased at the auto parts store, to the back of the pads on the front calipers. The difference is significant. At first the rattle was 100% gone but they it came back but only slightly. I think I will give it another try and let the product ...

Re: Brake pad rattle

It’s a metallic rattle that sounds like a lot of old cars that has something that rattles when you rev it up. Sorry for the poor description. I can’t for the life of me think of a better description of the rattle. I just picked up some disc brake quiet and will post the results. I will fiat try the ...

Re: Brake pad rattle

Thanks everyone. I will try some of the suggestions and see if they work for me.

Eric, the brake pad rattle sounds like a heat shield rattle on an old catalytic converter. It’s quite annoying but doesn’t seem to be causing any issues.

Brake pad rattle

I am up to 900 miles on the Triking and everything is going well. There are a couple of questions that maybe some of you have experience with. 1. I have a brake pad rattle that occurs at over 3000 rpm. Both the left and the right caliper have the inside pads rattle against the calipers. Have any of ...

Forehead Acupuncture

I got caught in the rain today. Needles on the forehead! Legs got a little wet but not to bad. Despite the discomfort, I was still smiling.

Re: Build progress

Nice work Tony. I found building the Triking almost as much fun as driving. The worst part was getting the inspection and registration done. When I fired mine up for the first time it felt great. Drive it without the body as you will find some minor things to address and it is much easier to do with...

Re: brake pad rattle

Eric, Do you have a Type 3 or 4? I have a Type 3 with the Lockheed / Grimeca style calipers. If I am stopped and in neutral and rev it up to about 3000 rpm I can visually see the pads vibrate on the pistons. Im wondering if there is some sort of a backer that can be put on the back of the pads. Also...
