Is your brake squealing?
We have seen this happen to many sleds here at Black Magic. A new sled will squeal like a stuck pig when hitting the binders for a corner. Why should this happen if the sled is new? We have seen over the years (since the introduction of hydraulic brakes) that if they are "broke-in" properly, this "howl" will not happen. This "break-in" period is a very simple task to perform. Simply put your sled on an enclosed stand (pointed in a safe direction) and fire it up.
Making sure the coolant, oil and gas tanks are full, rev up the sled and cycle the brakes. Cycling the brakes is accomplished by winding up the track to about 40-50 mph and then applying the brake. Let off and rev it up again. Do this 4-5 times or until you think the brake pads and disc are warm. Let the sled cool off and repeat one more time. This will condition the brake pads and the disc to help alleviate the "howl" that some of us have experienced.
Of course, this procedure is only effective on a chassis that is new with no miles on the brake pads or disc. Give it a try![/b]
