i've been hearing a slight dragging sound when riding so I put my bike on the rear stand today and spun the rear wheel slowly. The rear disc seems to be slightly touching the brake pads at some point in the revolution and making a small noise. It is not constantly touching, just at a certain points in the wheel rotation.

I know new pads make a noise till you have a few miles on it. I'm currently close to 1500kms on my bike so I would think the pads are worn in by now.

Anyone else experienced this and any suggestions on what I can do?


Just found a video of what I'm experiencing

I can't imagine you can hear it with the engine running. Slight drag is normal, as they heat up a layer of gas pushes them just off the surface.

If it has been struck, it can be bent, but a slight shhhh-shhhhhh is normal when rolling it around by hand.

Yes I am hear it only on a very quiet road or when riding down the ramp into my parking.

So I guess it's nothing to be concerned about then
