    My 2012 Dyna (single disk) was a buzzer under brakes, my 2017 Street Glide (twin disk) is not.

    Rollies in Brisbane are the importers/distributor. Great pad but if the buzz annoys you maybe stay away from them

    There's been some references to sintered pads, I'll try the non-sintered pads first. Local dealer carries Lyndall pads. If the cicada is still there, I'll try other brands.

    As I wrote in the other thread...
    08 Streetbob - HD pads, Lyndell pads, plus another brand I can't remember the name of. The cicadas have been buzzin since day one. Doesn't bother me.

    Thanks for the replies so far, a small sample shows buzzing brakes are common, but not universal. That's useful information.

    For me the noise is there under most application of brakes but grab a fistfull from higher speeds and you really hear it
