    This is not a luxury car. It's a sports car. All high performance brakes squeal. There's nothing you can do about it. It comes with the territory. Even much higher price point high performance vehicles still have brakes that squeal.

    Literally go by a Mercedes if you want a quiet boat.

    This is not that quiet boat.

    Many others on here have discussed the same concern you have. As long as your brakes are in good condition, there is nothing wrong with it. The noise literally just comes with the territory.

    Comes with the territory of utilizing high performance braking systems. You should hear some six figure sports cars...

    Try Powerstop pads for lesser dust and no noise.

    Are you using it so hard that its causes heat to warp your brake discs and rotors? This is the common reason why you're hearing a squeaking noise.

    Heat and / or warping do not cause squealing.

    The most common reason for noise is debris lodged between a pad and the rotor. This sets up the harmonic(s)...

    But does applying the brakes at speed sound like stamping on a piglet? Because that feature alone is worth the price of admission on the Vulcan.

    Most likely noisy..but pig-like not sure :^D

    The key to going fast / quick...is also addressing the ability to slow down / stop at least as quickly...

    What exact method did the OP use, if any, to bed in/burnish the new pads and rotors?
