    Talaria mechanical troubleshooting, repairs, adjustments, tips & tricks

    Apart from the gearbox, motor, controller, frame and battery, the Talaria bikes are very similar to Sur-Rons. Most components function like most other electric bikes.

    Squealing brakes?

    There are several possible reasons why your brake might make a squealing sound. The most common one is that there is some oil on the rotor that has affected the pads. Another possibility is that the pads have become glazed from overheating after a fast ride. A third possibility is that the caliper is not aligned properly. This can cause a slight friction that produces the noise. You need to adjust the caliper to fix this problem.

    Your bike is not fully assembled and tuned by a professional. It comes in a box and you have to do some setup yourself or take it to a local bike shop or talaria dealer.

    The first thing you should try is to align the caliper. Your bike has the same type of brakes as a Luna X2, so you can follow the same instructions. The brakes are more like mountain bike brakes than any other brakes. You only need to do the alignment at this point in the video: Click to see the video

    If the squealing persists, then it might be due to the pads being wet, dirty, contaminated or glazed.

    You can check this following link for some tips on how to clean and restore the pads: [pad cleaning tips]. I would not recommend the mud trick, though. That is only for emergencies when you are out in the woods and you don't have any other option. Click here to see the video

    After you clean the pads, try to avoid braking too hard for too long. You want to avoid overheating them again. You want to break them in gradually with short and strong pulls.

    If you done everything possible and they still squeal, you can try to use some "squeal out" paste product, that can be a last resort before replacing the pads. Just make sure that you read the label and do one brake a a time because once you apply these the brakes will loose most of stopping power until you completed the break-in.

    If the noise comes back after a while, then you might need to upgrade your pads to something better. You can look for pads that have cooling fins (like H03c) that help reduce the heat. If that is not enough, then you might want to invest in a new brake system altogether. The stock brakes are very basic and they are only good for normal riding. Sometimes, just changing the pads can make a big difference for most riders.​ Don't forget to clean the rotors thoroughly (chemical clean or sanding the rotor) when changing pads, specially when going from semi-metallic pads (AKA: resin or organic) to full metallic pad.

    hope that helps
