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.

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.

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.
