Squeaky brakes!

İ have squeaky brakes and its driving me nuts. İ have tried cleaning them and İ have tried bedding them...

The brake pads have not been changed since İ have bought the bike, it currently has 11,000km on the clock and the brakes still have life in them. Could this be the reason?

I had the same problem with my stock brakes..they still had life but made noise..Swap them out problem gone. Pads were over half way worn and they wore unevenly.

Good luck

You can scuff of the rotor with fine sandpaper, The rotor and pads could be glazed. I'm found that being easy on the breaks cause this faster, Being harder on them seem to keep them from glazing.

I have this problem too and I only have 3500 miles on the bike. They've been squeaking since I got the bike new.
