Squeeky front break

My k6 600 has an annoying squeek when I hit the front break. One would think a bike that isn't even 6 months old wouldn't be squeeking, and I have no idea what's making the god awful noise, but it needs to stop.

Any help?

Hit it with some brake cleaner and a tooth brush and try that.

Is it just when the brakes are cold, or all the time? Full floating rotors make a good deal on noise before they heat up to temp. If your brakes dont go quiet after the brakes get hot, you might need new pads

Pads could be glazed. A good cleaning with brake cleaner and hit the rotors with scothbrite, that should clear it up..
