Stopping = good

The Jawa protests loudly on occassion when the brakes are applied. How "standard" are moped brake pads/shoes? Is it a matter of pulling 'em apart and bringing the old pads along when shopping, or are they a mail order sort of thing?

I just wanna know where to start the search off.

these are some sites that should have your brake pads

Re: Stopping = good

if squealing noise is the only problem, the pads and drums might just be glazed.. take some fine sandpaper to them. But if you see metal-to-metal contact, ya do need new parts.

Re: Stopping = good

The drums could also be full of brake lining dust.

To know where you are at, open them up and take a look.

BE CAREFUL!!!! OLD BRAKE LININGS WERE MADE WITH ASBESTOS. DO NOT BREATH THE DUST. SPRAY DRUMS WITH BRAKE CLEANER TO CLEAN THEM OUT. DO NOT BLOW OUT WITH AN AIR HOSE.

The brakes, or the outer drum linings? Good thing I have a P100 mask.

Re: Stopping = good

The dust could be anywhere inside the brake housing. So take it easy any time you open a brake assembly.
