Mine do the same thing. I cleaned them with brake cleaner and they stopped...for about 10 miles. I think I need them to be cleaned by someone who know what they're doing.

Did you prep your rotors before changing the pads out?

My Ducati did the same thing. I'd cleaned the rotor with acetone and alcohol, still made noise. I replaced the pads with HH+ pads, problem solved. :thumbup:
Rotors should be prepped by either wetsanding or bead blasting. By doing so you are giving the new pads a clean surface to bed-in. Also, if you get heat spots on your rotors (common in track riding) you can also just use a little wetsand to get them off. Some guys will even lightly sand their brake pads to clean them off to re-bed them.

maybe i should try wet sanding it. mind though that its a new bike and it only has 800 miles on it. I might have to replace the back pads with metallic ones. Where can I get them for 05 600?? :hmmm: :headscrat

Is it squeaking or is it singing? My rear disk sings if I put about 2/3 pressure on the pedal, it stops if I lighten up or if I press harder. It's just an anomale of those bikes to pick up a harmonic vibration at a certain rear brake pressure.

Just use more brake. My front brakes never squeaked that I can remember when I still had the stock pads in. My rear brake will only squeak if I haven't used it for a while and I'm using it very gently. When I put EBC pads in the front they started squeaking quite a bit. I started stopping harder and the squeaking went away. You don't have to use maximum braking power, just a bit more than a normal car driver uses. Nowadays if I am stuck riding in traffic for a while they will start squeaking again because I can't use enough brake without risking getting rearended. But when I get out of traffic all it takes is one good stop and they stop squeaking again. Your mileage may vary.

:lol: I'll take her, I need a new race bike for next season. Don't give up, it's either the rotor or pads. Either way a cheap fix really. Rear rotor on ebay is cheap $25-$35 and pads are $25-$40 depending on brand and you only need one set for the rear anyways. By the way, what brand are they?
