Squeaky brakes! How do you un-squeak them?

Anyone else having squeaky front brakes? Mine are getting worse. I mentioned it to my dealer when I dropped it off for it's 7,000Km service....all they concluded on the report was it was due to "metalic brake pads". They didn't even offer me any solutions nor did they even try to 'up-sell' me on new and better brake pads!?!? :rolleyes

So my question to my fellow SBN'ers is two fold....

1. What can I do to fix or clean to make my pads stop squealing. (I have a can of "Brake cleaner" but it says NOT to get on your pads?!?!)

2. What are some good replacement brake pads to get for our bike? (brand and types)

Thanks guys.

Check rotor and disc pads and make sure they're to specification and all moving parts are not binding. If all mechanicals are to spec, proceed as follows:

1) Scratch up the rotor disc with coarse sandpaper until the glaze/shine is rubbed out. Note: You are not removing material, just taking the glaze/shine off lightly and evenly on both sides of the rotors!
Good luck, y'all.
^^^my recommendation as well!
