front brake squeak under hard braking

Haven't ridden in a while (1month) and my front brake are squeaking under semi hard pressure.

anyone else have this issue? brake plate has no rust or anything.
maybe something that will go away after a few rides?

Easy if you have stands and tools, take the calipers off , flip your pads around which will force them to bed in again. Give the rotors a clean with some scotch brite and it wouldn't hurt to give the calipers a wash around the pistons with warm soapy water while theyre off.

All my ducati's I've owned squeal like this under hard braking and similar noise from my KTM dirt bikes . IMO the culprit is the brembo, the reason is performance.

My guess is this is due to the other manufactures brakes are HIGH Chromium called stainless steel and the brembos are HIGH carbon steel sometimes called stainless steel . but in my opinion the brembos are simply high carbon steel .

here is an ad for brembo discs for example :

Why should you choose Brembo discs?

Increased 5mm rotor thickness provides a balance between durability, performance and weight - whether on track or road
High Carbon Steel has better Friction and Heat Absorption properties than OE or cheaper high Chromium content Stainless Steel replacement discs

absolutely . I left this out - the brake pads make the squeal too . on past mx bikes I've switched from stock yamaha brake pads to sintered on a yamaha with nissin calipers and it made them squeal like crazy .
