squeaky brakes

Hey does anyone have a quick fix for squeaky brakes? I have noticed that my brakes squeak even when I turn the steering wheel(while moving of course). Anyone have any advise?

Although I do not recomend this...... I have heard that spraying WD40 on the pads will make the squeak go away.

IMO... it is an off road vehicle not a Lexus. You just have to deal with it.

My rear brake started squeeking real bad. I took the pads out and sanded them down a bit and the squeek went away.

My 08 does the same thing. Yamaha said it is normal. Hard pads on hard rotor surface. It seems like it has gotten better over time. I ride almost every day. I notice it more when I turn at low speeds than when I use the brake.

I noticed this on mine this last weekend after about 5 miles the rear starts squeaking, I just figured it was the parking brake hangin up and starting to get hot after a while.

Search my posts and you will see I have used WD-40 a million times on my old 07 with zero issues! It works like a charm..only problem is it doesn't last more than a day or two before you have to put it on again!

Has anyone found a replacement brake disc yet? Maybe a vented one will remedy the squeaking?
