What kind of noise??? A light squeal or more of a grinding \noise???? Check the brake pad friction material condition and height from backing plate. If you cannot check this yourself have someone else do it soon.

Front brakes aren't releasing properly. How can I fix this problem? Is it a matter of bleeding the brakes?

Lets start with some simple things since you just put on new pads, I assume the brakes worked properly prior.
First, what kind of pads to you install? Some abrasive pads will make a grinding noise till they wear in. You can help this by filing a small beveled edge all the way around the pad surface.
Second, did you adjust the brake fluid level in the master cylinder after installing the new pads? After pushing the caliper piston in to install the new pads there may be too much fluid in the resevoir now causing a constant pressure in the lines. Place a towel around the master cylinder and remove the top. If fluid runs over the top you may have found your problem. Use a baster or syringe to **** out any excess fluid.

There s a the picture you need.
I think that the brakes (no.2) are blocked inside.
You have to take a look.

Grinding noise when pushing the rear brake

Whilst riding ,try pushing the brakes with the clutch in and if you still hear the noise it will most likely be your brake pads(possibly worn to metal) or the discs themselves.

My Brembo front floating rotors seem to be a little to loose. This is a 30,000 mile bike. Should I be concerned?

Yes, you should be concerned anytime the brakes on a bike act or look strange. Safety First. Have a dealer take a look at the brakes.

91 goldwing stops when brakes are pplied

You have a wire that is shorting to the ground in the brake switch system. It's probably not in one of the switches, since it happens when either brake is activated. More likely wire grounding on frame or in harness somewhere. You should hear something in your headset when this happens. I am supprised that it hasn't blown fuse. Rick
