terrible rear brakes



  • Hi i have always had terrible rear brakes on my dt 125x. I changed braked pads and have bled the brakes several times after that, but still they are almost useless. brake disc seems okay. any tips?



  • Using decent quality pads makes a difference. I spent £40 om front pads on my dt and I swear by them.

    Cheap pads won't do any good.

    Also pads take time to bed in.
    I'd also look at getting maybe a wavy disc. Not sure if that has any benefits.



  • After riding along i notice my brakes werent as bad as i thought! very useable so not going to fiddle any more with it as im satisfied with them. thanks for your reply 🙂
