    Bb5

    I have BB5 on my bike and they make a bit of noise at times. I have dusted them and that is all, is there a better way to clean them, should I take the pads off and do anything to them, The bike has about 350 miles on it and never touched the brakes.

    Do I need to replace em?

    First step is to re-align your caliper, basically loosening the CPS bolts a couple of turns and following the installation instructions from there. If that doesn't work, clean the rotor using ammonia or mineral spirits.

    Here is some installation guidance:

    So tonight I took my breaks apart, sanded the pads with 120grit, cleaned them with alcohol, and then the rotor. Also readjusted em.

    Wow they stop much better and the shake feeling is gone.

    Highly recommend it, also was shocked how much pad was still there.
