Are Honda's prone to squealing brake pads? Is it the material they use in the pads? I had this problem on my F4 and now my 954!! What's the best way to get rid of it?

My stock pads NEVER made a sound but the new EBC HH's make a sort of 'zzzzzzzz' sound. Pretty cool, I guess.

When's the last time you washed your bike? My bike starts to do this when it gets dirty because a piece of dirt will get between the pad and the rotor which will cause it to squeal. Try hosing off the rotors and the pads. It also wouldn't hurt to pull the brake pads and rough them up with some sand paper. Then clean both the rotors and the brake pads with brake cleaner. Hopefully this will clear up the problem.
