    Front brake squeal!

    Coming to a halt the last few feet are very embarrassing! My 2016 Iron front brakes are getting noisy. I've cleaned disc with brake cleaner and used abrasive pad to de-glaze but still gets noisy again after a few stops. May be I need to remove the pads and clean, scrape or lube a bit - is it as easy as releasing the pin to drop the pads or do I need to adjust the caliper first? Mine is ABS. Input appreciated - the noise is bugging me! Maybe I should take it in under warranty and let Harley sort it. if they can. I understand the late model Sportsters are prone to this problem.

    Used sandpaper and brake fluid to give the disc a good rub down. Noise has virtually gone.
