Front brakes squeak a little

Hey all,

Glad to see all is back.

I've got a 2002 Busa with 1,450 miles on it.  In the last 50 miles or so, the front brakes like to squeak some when I apply them. It's not obnoxiously bad, but is definately there.

I do not ride hard, nor do I ride very often.  Possibly a bit of surface rust has developed on the rotors?  I don't see any there, but maybe there's something that's hard to detect. Could there be a buildup of aesbestos dust on them, or something? Just thinking out loud here.

Has anyone else experienced this?  I'm not overy worried about it, but it's a bit annoying.

Thanks.

My '02 didn't even have 200 miles on it before the front brakes started squeaking. Weather is the biggest player there, but I made the dealer give me new pads under warranty. Good pads too. Haven't had a problem since.

Pretty embarrasing cruisin through town on a nice new bike and have a huge annoying squeak in the front!

Might be dirt on the pads or a film of something on the rotors. Maybe try washing the rotors.
