Author Topic: Clicking sound when front brake is applied  (Read 2703 times)

Well I have about 300 miles now on my new BV 500. The scooter is running great and I am please so far.  I just got back from a ride and noticed when I apply the front brake I get like a clicking sound. The rear break dosen't make any sound just the front brake. The brake fells fine no sponginess or anything. I was wondering if this might be related to the linked brake system. Any ideas anyone? Thanks

I had a chance to search on another forum and it seems like this question has been asked many times. It seems like the air getting Trapped in the holes of the rotor while appling the brake makes this noise. Many different scooter owners have heard this. So I guess I really don't have a problem after all.

You don't have a problem, this is a standard Piaggio quirk.  Not a flaw, Piaggio's brakes are excellent.

That's exactly what it is. I wear ear plugs now so I don't hear it anymore. The bike has a bunch of miles on it with the original brakes so I don't know if it still does it. It did it when it was new.

Glad it worked out to be a non-issue.

hooray
no problem is better than one problem
mine squeal from time to time
think it may be hard spots in the brake pad but not sure

edit to correct spelling, don't know why I worry about that now but better late than never I guess

It's amazing what can be accomplished when no one cares who gets credit.
