I was wondering if it was normal for the front wheel to have a little squeaking at low speeds? I can hear this in first and second gear, as well as when I'm just pushing the bike. Not sure what it is, but sounds like the front break is rubbing very slightly.

On a similar note, anybody have advise on treating a noisey front break?

Thanks,
Craig

*edit* the first noise I reported at low speeds occurs when the front break is not in use.

When we picked up my wifes '05 650 the front brakes squealed pretty loudly. The bike had only 500 miles on it so I took out the pads and broke the glaze on a sheet of sandpaper. It seemed to do the trick as the noise went away. Hope this helps.
