    Default Champion rear braking

    Hi..I have a 2005 Champion trike kit for my 2005 Goldwing. I put new tires and pads on both rear wheels and bled the system very thoroughly. The braking improved quite a bit. However, what I did notice is that when I step down really hard, the left wheel locks up, but the right wheel does not. It does this consistently. I even noticed it before the new pads, bleeding and tires. Road condition is dry at all times. What can be the issue with this uneven braking? Thanks

    I'm thinking I might just replace one or both of the calipers...looks like under $100 for both including shipping.

    An update--I just both two new calipers and now it brakes like it should. I was going to do a rebuild, but the trike is 10 years old, so I decided it needed a birthday present. Now it brakes like it should and both wheels squeel at the same time.

    Default Rear Brakes

    I have a 2008 Goldwing Champion trike. Does anyone know what brake pads go on the rear? Called champion and they said that they had special pads that I could order for $75 and with shipping $88.20.

    Sorry do not know what pads they used, but I would try a parts store that is willing to compare what you have with their manuals and see whats looks the same. Possibly some type of VW pad. Can not hurt to try. I have good luck with NAPA help.
