View Full Version : Suzuki VS 800 Front Brakes

I am about to install the FA-103 Kevlar front brakes on my 2003 800 Intruder. Should I use the CRC Anti Brake Squeal, Caliper grease or nothing on the shims. I have read that this stuff attracts dirt and can have a negative on brake performance and squeal.

I wouldnt use anything. The pads themsevles have a coating on them that will need to wear down a bit before you get optimum braking, so let that burn off first, and later down the road as the pads wear you may want to use some anti squeal.

Thanks for the information, I cleaned the caliper of all the brake dust and will not use any of the anti squeal stuff.
