but I just got home from a 40-mile beat run. along the beginning of my trip, the squeaky brakes drove me nuts (same as always), so i decided to find a deserted road and heed the advice of this post. the links, the procedure, and the idea in general seemed very promising.
found my 55mph country road. 1st and 2nd gear only, up to 60, down to 10, 8-10 times (I lost count).
results: for a while there afterward, life was good. no squeaking. finally, a solution?
10 min later - squeaking rear. 5 min after that - squeaking front.
the procedure was pretty fun! waste of gas revving it up and waste of brake pad material. i had those babies smokin. i could tell because they stunk... bad. i really harped on them to the point where i feared a sudden abs failure would lead to front lock up and me playing superman right over the handlebars. perhaps it was not so much that i didn't trust the abs to stop me, but the tires have their work cut out for them stopping 800lbs+200lbs as fast as possible.
may try it again in the future. not sure though, it was pretty dangerous, and in the end solved nothing. just a heads up for those of you who try it. i bet it's just a temporary solution to a permanent problem. would be interested to know if it worked for anyone else, and if so, how many miles after the procedure.
