Hey, guys.

I've got a 2003 LT-F500F and while I ride it the rear brake will sort of squeak like a rubbing noise at one point while the wheel turns. It speeds up and slows down along with the quad. I'm assuming the disk has a slight bulge on that spot or something but I haven't taken it off to look at it that hard yet (In the process of "fixing" the shop's ignorance to detail with the carb...). Anyone else have any experience with this sort of deal?

Before I could hear one of the brake shoes jingling back there. lol.

My vinson does the same thing with the squeeking back brake. There is retainer clip that holds the brake shoe in place check to make sure the brake pad is seated in the retainer. That might be why your hearing the jiggly noise of the pad. Also if you have it apart grease the slides and the bolts that slide in the rubber boots. That might stop the squeeking noise. Because the pads can slide freely on the slides. I haven't had time to tear mine apart but that's what I'm gonna do.
