Hey all, looking for help. I just replaced my brake lines. All went well. stops fine etc. While driving I get a clicking noise with each tire rotation. Slight application of the brakes and it goes away.

I don't know crap about how the pistons work so any help in diagnosing would be great.

85`Brick.

If it's a "clicking" then it may be something brushing against one of the forks each rotation. Jack up the front end and spin the wheel to see if you can determine the culprit.

Did you put the ant-chatter spring back in on the brake pads (the piece of metal that looks like a 'V' with a loop on one and and a hook on the other)? If that's missing then your brakes will rattle like hell.

I am assuming that you took the pads out to do the job! Very Happy
