I’ve been a proud Oracle (24) owner for some time now and I’ve learned to ignore the squealing the disc makes at very low speeds (fairly recent problem). Of late, however, my disc has been acting up a bit; the small scraping of one of the pads has turned to severe drag to the point where I’ve had to take my calliper off.
I though about putting a spacer between the D’Brake and the calliper adapter (post to IS) but the rubbing is coming from the outside pad as shown in the image below. Everything’s installed correctly and the brake is in good condition so I cant see why it would rub.
Another problem I’m having is with the pads themselves. A while back I noticed that my rotor had a black line about 2/3rds of the way from the outside edge which I assume is due to uneven pad/rotor wear. This isn’t much of a problem as my brake’s still pretty beefy (especially since I just wiped my pads down with water to get rid of the gunk).
What is a real problem, however, is the noise my brake makes. Occasionally my brake loses power and starts making this - to put it bluntly - ‘wet fart’ sound. It’s not just a sound though, you can feel it as if there is something catching on the rotor’s holes.
Does anyone know what might be causing these problems?
