Hi, does anybody hear that the brake pads are almost always touching the disks or is it only my Super Soco ? My dealer says its with every gas engine moped like that but since the motor is so loud , you dont hear the brakes.

Yes the brakes are making a lot of noise.

You could use some "brakecleaner" of Copper-grease spray, that helps.

Changing the pads with decent ones may be another solution.

its not just the noise but if they are constantly on the disks, they wear out a lot quicker.

Just wonder if its just my bike.

all Super Soco (TC's) have this hissing brake pad contact noise. It is a design decision because the brake cyliner is not retracted. On gasoline motorcycles you cannot notice it.

The loud sqeaky sound during stronger braking is not normal, though. It is due to dust accumulation. A facebook user made the suggestion to blow off the dust with pressurized air before each trip.

Yes, that was me. I doesn't need to be every trip, I've only done it once or twice. 

On a dry day - use a compressed air cleaner as used by IT to clean electronics, sometimes called an air duster, to blow any dust out from the brakes. Works a treat...
