How old are they? Could be poorly bedded pads as well.

If your pads are new, it could be that the edges need filed down. If they've been on there for a while, they could need replacing. How many miles on the pads/ bike?

correct me if i am wrong, but you could always go to autozone and get some brake grease that keeps it from squeaking? i think its like 3.99 and apply it to the back of the pad (not the front...rotor facing side)

it helps with the vibrations that could be causing the squeaking.

I know how you feel. My front rotors have been making this rubbing sound ever since i bought the bike last year. I have taken it to the dealership, and they keep telling me its normal :eek: hmm.. maybe i will get that grease lol.

btw,,,just changed my front brakes and cleaned the S out of the caliper and pistons, maybe now it will be better
