Hopefully this is temporary.. But


I changed over to some goodridge SS Brake lines..

and as my first brake job.. it got kind of messy with the brake fluid...

How bad is it if brake fluid got on the disc / into the caliper?


I took it for a test drive after i finished and if i grabbed the brakes hard it made not a screeching noise... but a .. garbing.. noise.

Brake fluid on the disk itself is not bad,if you catch it. Its a murphys law thing that oilly stuff you need to stop a bike ,is the worst contaminant for the brake pads and the two are really close to each other. Don't move the wheel, take note of where the fluid landed on the disk and where it might run to, then grab the brake cleaner aerosol and go to town , wipe away from the pads and repeat you should be ok,test on your drive way ,an empty street at very low speeds , then procede. I've had contaminated pads on dh mountainbikes and cleaning and soaking them never seemed to work all that well, usually just ended up replacing them,cheap compared to crashing into something.
