Re: replacing break pads
Replacing stock or worn brake pads is the quickest way to get increased braking power out of a tired system. Various manufacturers make all kinds of different types of replacement brake pads for today's motorcycles. Some claim to last longer, while others claim to give more feel and braking power. However, be forewarned that the manufacturer of your motorcycle put a lot of time and effort into developing your braking system, and there is no telling what a different type of pad material might do to your rotors or how well different pads will work with the overall design and setup of your bike. If you have any doubts, then stick with genuine factory parts.
Removing the calipers from the rotors is the first step in checking your brake pads. In dealing with your front disc brakes, first remove the Front Caliper two main bolts that attach the calipers to the forks. Once the calipers are free you can slide them off of the brake discs and inspect the amount of pad material and look for anything out of the ordinary. If there is less than 1/8 inches of pad thickness left then they should be replaced

The brake lining's have worn away, the squealing was metal to metal (worn pad against metal disc) The worn pad will have damaged the brake disc. Very dangerous. You will now have to have new brake pads and discs fitted to BOTH front wheels to put it right. Good luck
It's probably just the brake pads starting to wear out. Most pads will start to produce the squeaking noise when they are close to being worn out to let you know that it's time to go and have them replaced. Take it to your preferred mechanic and ask them to check your brake pads. Hopefully, you just need new pads and you'll be on your way, but your mechanic should be able to tell you if it is something more sinister than the brake pads wearing out.
The front pads are worn down which makes the brake fluid fill up the void the brake pads are missing now due to wear. Replace the brake pads and brake rotors if the rotors are worn too, then top off the brake fluid if needed. You can top of the break fluid for now, but that's just going to turn off your break light warning till you breaks wear it self down to the point you damage the brake rotors.
Have the brake pads replaced and inspect the brake rotors, if your good with common tools you can do this job your self in under 1 hour. Tools you need is a jack, 15mm socket, ratchet, screw driver and a clamp. The Clamp is optional, you can get the brake pads at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done. Keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have and good luck.

YES Any Brake Material That Has Had Any Oil Contacted Should Be Replaced , The Heat Generated By Brake friction Basicly Cookes Shoes Or Pads into A Different Chemical Makeup, For lack of Better Discription. NEVER Use Oil / Fluid Contaminated Pads Or Shoes
1. bleed your vehicle while the engine is running. 2. Check ALL your brake lines, connections and wheel brakes cylinders or calipers of any leaks or moisture. 3. If nothing happens, your brake masters or your caliper's pistons may be weak and needs replacement.
post me of any development
