Weird whining squeal when stopping?

Recommended Posts

I am experiencing a strange squeal from my 2014 DRZ400S when stopping. It isn't the brakes. It sounds like air being squeezed out a wet hole... Haha.. Seriously like a squealy fart. Only just as I'm about to stop after going 30km/h or more... Like, the sound doesn't start until I'm under 5km/h...the whole time I'm slowing down it doesn't make the sound, until I'm just about to come to a stop... Then... Lightly...

"Weeeeeeee."

Weird eh?

What is that?

Brake fluid? Clutch fluid? Rad fluid? It sounds fluidy...

It could be air trapped between the brake pads (in the rotor holes).  I can hear that, just the pads scrubbing the rotors as I stop.  Usually can't hear anything else though, bike is too damn loud.

 

Coolant overflow filling up?

My Sm makes noise too.. Sounds like a snowmobile braking only not as loud. Brakes work awesome though and the noise is not super loud so I don't pay any attention to it. Its done that since the day I picked it up. Two of my friends have sm's and theirs do the same thing.. Also I will add that its only the front brake that does it...
