I can't stop

Well, this wil be about the fifteenth problem woth my Hayes HFX-9's. I didn't upgrade yet but listen to my problem. I was riding around a local neighborhood with my friend and my rear disc started vibrating like mad like so much my back wheel was acting weird and I could feel it through my frame. So I squeeze the lever a little more and all I heard was squirt and I look behind and all of this brake fluid or hydraulic fluid is squirting everywhere. All over my pads disc hub, back of my body etc. My hose obviously broke. So what will I have to replace since the fluid got on everyhing, I think I need to replace the hoses, pads and disc. am I correct if I do replace the pads, which ones should I get? I will just get the same disc though.

What do you mean get new brakes? Can't I just replace te parts that got messed up temporarily, I don't have enough money for a whole new set of brakes.

You dont need to replace the rotors I think, or the pads, just clean them in some denatured alcohol, as for the brakes, get some better hoses.......not too keen on hydros yet.....

Rubbing alcohol is fine for the rotors. For the pads, they are a few bucks each, no big deal. If you send the caliper to Hayes for servicing, 99% of the time they give you new pads installed whether you ask for them or not... without charge. Something to consider.

Goodridge lines are a good investment.

I would recommend new brake pads and put the rotor in boiling water or very quickly (less than a seccond) run a blow torch over the rotor to burn off any residues but do not leave on long enough to heat disc up too much as it will warp and distort. I second the Goodridge lines
