diassemble your brakes and put some stuff that is called anti break squeal.Its commonly used in the automotive industries. You can get it at your local car parts store. What usually causes brakes to squeal is dust behind the brake pad.Under breaking it actually vibrates and cause the squeal.That stuff is really good. I use it on any car or bike that has any kinds of brake pads.

you may have glazed the pad (or rotor) from light braking or improper break in. Get up to about 50 or so and apply the rear break hard but CAREFULLY. do not stomp it down but put nice, smooth firm pressure on it making sure you do not lock it up. Do this while holding the throttle on so you maintain your basic speed. Do this for about 3-5 seconds and repeat a few times. if it does not stop the squeal after a couple of attempts, try something else. By the way, a good way to stop the rear from making noise is not to use it. Fronts have all your stopping power- back is good for holding you still at a stoplight and parking in the garage.

70% Front
30% Rear

Yeh I know about the 70/30 and I hardly ever use my rear...I just apply a little pressure when stopping, which is when it starts to sqeek...If I apply more pressure it goes away...

I'm all about the rear brake. I'd rather replace 2 pads than replace 8 pads. HAHA :D

i feather my rear break when i have the bike in a lower gear in hard cornering to keep the bike from being twitchy if i have to adjust the throttle. i guess it puts more load on the wheels so the weight doesn't shift around as much. i dunno really i haven't been riding for very long. i also use it when i dont want to wheelie anymore

that's wierd cause my 750 started squeeking after my first highway trip i took. kinda stopped now (300 mi later)
:hammer:
