why do my brakes sound like a feight train?

Recommended Posts

I was riding my 2014 kx450f for the first time today. Just taking it easy, doing the initial break in,  The only complaint I have is with the front brake. It squeals so bad that it sounds like a freight train.. Will this go away?

Mine started sounding like this after about 20 hours. I haven't had a chance to clean the brake rotors, but it squeals louder than any bike I've owned.

Seems the only way to make it stop is aftermarket. Big money makes the noise go away! Mine do it too.

Get the EBC carbon graphite pads. The wont sqeek. I also put these in the rear because they run cooler and wont turn the rotor blue.
