    XT 785's very loud when wet

    XT 785's very loud when wet-imageuploadedbytapatalk1396737742.317952.jpg
    I just built this bike in January.
    F: 203mm non-ice tech rotor
    R: 180mm non-ice tech rotor
    Sintered pads. (Have organic on order).

    Riding in snow, muddy or just wet conditions, even on warm days - if my rotors get wet they howl like crazy and take a long hard (loud) downhill to clear up. No downhill - noise won't go away. People must think a buck is injured in the woods - frigging embarrassing. A quick rotor clean at home and all is good.

    But I'm looking for a solution/prevention to the on-trail noise. My Magura brakes have never been this loud when wet. Otherwise I love these XT's - silent and powerful when dry.

    Caliper alignment looks ok, but I've adjusted it and had no effect. What else?

    I had the same prob on my XT's and organic pads solved the prob.

    be aware that organic pads won't last as long if its wet, especially if its muddy/gritty.
    What exactly is a rigid hard tail?

    OK - any other differences to be aware of?
