Hmmm...sounds like I'm not alone. I mainly raised issue as previous ride (bmr r1100s) had brembos and it never made any noise. And the front pads lasted until I changed them at 47,500 miles (and that included doing much canyon activity). Anyway, Adrian I just filed in two, maybe 1/8-inch-deep, grooves at right angles (idea was to allow dust to escape) and it worked. Braking was unaffected, but rest of the story...it was only used for the street riding and bracket (drag) racing. So wondered if this would help/cure Sazook. But after my experience with Bmer, why should we have to?
