Default Front brake sound

Since I got my bike about a week ago the front brake has made a buzz when breaking. (sounds kind of like a locus) Throughout the whole brake period up to very slow. The break works and there is plenty of meat on the pads.

Is this a normal sound with victory's?

It is for now. You don't say how many miles you have on it.
As long as the bike rolls easy with you pushing it your fine.

The bike has 34K miles on it.
It rolls great and stopps well also.

As long as this is a normal Victory sound I will embrace it and not worry.

That is the sound that aftermarket pads make. One of the reasons I won't put them on a customers bike

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

Kevin,
That's really interesting to know. Does it cause any damage? what kind should be on them?
