Question about 2008 Harley Davidson FLHX Street Glide
Disc "squeal" is almost always caused by vibration between metal parts of the brake system - usually between the brake pad backing and the caliper piston, and between the pads and the pins that hold them to the caliper. The majority of people think that the sound is a result of the pads rubbing against the rotor, but this is rarely the case.
Buy a good anti disc pad grease from auto parts store and apply the the edge of the caliper piston and the back of the brake pad - also place lubricant on the pins and where they make contact to the pads. don't go crazy, because excess could get on the rotor and cause braking problems. Keep the rotor and pad surfaces as clean as possible - if you get grease on them, spray a good cleaner such as brake clean to remove the dirt/grease from the pad and rotor.
Put it all back together, and you should be good to go. This fix has worked perfectly on many bikes over the years.

If you have a "squeal" when you apply the brakes, spray the anti-squeal spray on the rotor. If the brakes are "squeaking" when you go down the road, it's probably the caliper moving side to side on the pins. Remove the pins and apply synthetic brake grease on the pins.
