Default Squeaking rear brake

I have noticed that my rear brake is squeaking. I had to have a new disc put on it last year when it had less than 2,000 miles on the bike...I bought it that way from the original owner. It now is squeaking when I apply the rear and wonder what that might mean other than it is squeaking. In a car it means it is time to change the pads before the rotors are destroyed. Before I take it to the local Vic dealer and end up leaving with another $500.00 repair job, I thought I would hit you guys up with the issue. ThX P.S. I did look at the disc and it appears in good shape and with at least as much thickness at the two front disc

if its the pad it means its loose or has dirt on the pad.
Pull the pad put some sandpaper on a flat surface and run the pad over the sand paper
It might fix it

^ Yeah good point made there.

Squeaking in a car doesn't always mean the pads/rotors are bad...I manage a small fleet of mid size SUVs and we have it all the time. Pads can get small grooves in them and when dirt/dust gets in them, they vibrate a small amount causing that squeak. Usually, a shot with the garden hose to the rotors can stop it (clean the area). If not, try the above and freshen up the pads/rotor.
