motor Oil On DISC BRAKES!!!!! PLZ HELP
edited September 2008
I put shell motor oil on my disc brakes. What can i do to make them work properly again. They work, but squeak and make my bike viberate and doesnt work as well. PLZ RESPOND :?
Alcohol based cleaner should work - Muc Off Disk Brake cleaner is my stuff of choice.
Any reason for putting motor oil on the brakes?!
And please don't say "to stop them squeaking!!"
If on the pads though, will be the end of them. New pads time!
We have a dedicated workshop section airman where you might find more help/articles.
