    so i had some brake squeel, cleaned all components, applied anti-squeel lube..fine now ,..however upon thinking about this, i think the pads are a bit thin, what is poll suggestions on brand or pads to use? type, composition..etc.. the pads on the front were way easy to remove compared to past..jmho..thanks ryd

    Replaced my frt pads at 15,000 miles and were very very thin. Next time at dealer asked to look at new frt pads. You maybe surprised how thin the new pads are...The factory HD pads work great for me. I would closely look at rear pads. Changed mine at 8,400 miles.

    I have a preference to use harley davidson pads for my brakes they seem to be a very good match for the brake disc's
