borto1990 My bike is an 04 that I bought with 3K on it. squeeks when I am just about to a stop.. been doing it since day one. played around with the brakes for a few days when I first got it.. I tub ground my rotors and stoned the groves out of the pads and no help. I just learned to live with it. gets kind of annoying sometimes but I hardly notice it anymore.

Knifemaker Front brake pads usualy go at more like 10-15 thousand miles...but it does depend on how hard you use them.

They should not squeek when you are not applying the brakes.

Someone here can tell us, but I think the pads have some kind of "wear indicatior" to know when they need replacing.

Front Pads

Is it possible with normal riding that I would need front brake pads after only 4,000 miles? If so, that may be the source of my front end squeek. Any opiniond appreciated.
