Squeeky Front Brake - 939

Anyone have one before? Any solutions?

Redress the front discs, pull the pads (replace if necessary), apply a thin layer of caliper grease to the back of the pads. Should be smooth and quiet.

There is also this https://www.amazon.com/CRC-Disc-Brak.../dp/B000CINV88

Rather than putting grease on or near your brakes O_O

Common practice, has been done for as long as disc brakes have existed. All it does it prevent the pads from resonating, which causes the squeek. No way for it to migrate to pad surface.

Search the brake threads. Most likely sticky bobbins on the floating discs. Put a thin coat of grease on the bobbin race and be sure they spin freely. I have to do mine every couple months or they start chattering and making noise.

Pads are not the problem.

My concern with grease on the pads and for that matter the pins, is that it holds dirt and grit. I know they make grease specifically for this purpose, but I've stopped using it.

Have you done any front end work on the bike recently? New tire perhaps? I have found the following tip to be very helpful in reducing brake noise...may not be your issue, but still a great practice:

No work, it's quite faint. I'll try the CRC stuff and report back.
