Default Front Brake Noise is Irritating

the front brake on my 2011 Jackpot makes a loud rubbing noise when fully engaged at a stop. Does anyone know if there is an adjustment that can be made to the brake or should I just replace the stock brake pads?

I'm confused. Your brakes are making a noise when already stopped? Are you sure you worded that correctly?

probably not. The noise is at the very end of the stop

Just out of curiosity, and I hope you don't take this wrong, what bikes have you owned before this one?

I ask because all makes and models have their peculiarities. Unlike a car where one just buys it, drives it, and does basic maintenance on it; a motorcycle requires much more attention. Much like a private airplane where constant inspection is needed.

I'm not being condescending; just trying to get a handle on your experience.

i bet your rotors are glazed. get a scotch brite pad and some chlorine free brake cleaner and go to town on your rotors on both sides of each (use the cleaner as a lubricant). Then, once fully scuffed and clean, re-bed your pads using one of many recommended techniques in a safe area. should help with the sound you are experiencing, if at least reducing it.

I bet you switched to a half helmet and are hearing brake noise for the first time.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Are you kidding me? This is a brand new bike with 1200 miles.
I traded a Harley Superglide and have been riding other Harleys and Kawasaki's for years. Dealer says problem is due to dust and needs to be blown out.
