Squeeky Brakes?

My 919 has always had a front brake squeek when stopping. Spray on squeel eliminators work for a bit, but are messy and always come back. I have heard that this is common to the 919. Anyone else?

how many miles on those brakes? Mine squealed when they got hot and that was because I was trying to keep shaughnessy in sight..

I just got the bike in July, but the dealer did some work for me on it. The pads look good and they feel good too. Hot or cold, it doesnt matter. They do stop good too. But quieter would be nice.

My bike does the same thing and I have taken them off cleaned the rotors and brake pads but it is still there. I don't know what else to do but get new pads but the ones I have on now have plenty of miles left on them???

My 919 did it to, the only way I fixed it was when I swapped the rotors out for aftermarket wave rotors and new pads.

My VFR does the same thing...

Switch left and right and see how it sounds.

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.

Mine was new dealer purchase and did the squeak for the first season. Never heard it again, and didn't do anything to fix it.

Just consider yourself lucky, my brakes squeak even when I'm not touching them!

Theory is when you know everything, but nothing works. Practice is when everything works but you don't know why. In my shop theory and practice are combined, nothing works and I don't know why.

go out find a long straight road with no one on it and do a good 8 or so 60 to 5mph stops... HARD stops... almost nose wheelie stops.... BUT NEVER FULLY STOP... then ride for a couple of miles without touching the breaks to let em cool down... id bet they dont squeak after that.
