Are you at the wear limit, rust on disc, or a glaze on pads?

Funny, I get a wierd sound when I lock up the front brake, kinda a screaching sound followed by a crunch and grind noise.....Any ideas??








Seriously, I took the front wheel off this morning because of a wierd noise and low and behold, the front bearings are really really rough. Should I stick with the stock bearings or is there an aftermarket bearing that will work better. (I know, don't use a pressure washer. But I have to, it gets too dirty to "dust off")

Bearings come in standard sizes. You might want to use a bearing that is sealed on both sides for a possible longer life.

That's what I was thinking. I ride in all conditions and in all weather and I have a feeling that the stock bearings would fail again. Not bad I guess for 9000 miles in 4 months, especially in the conditions I ride in.
