I've noticed a kind of strange sound when braking on my '08RT. when I brake, I generally still apply both front and rear brakes as I always have and I hear a sound coming from the front wheel (I think) that is dependent on the wheel speed, i.e. as the revolutions slow down so does the "click". anybody else have this? everybody else? thanks.

Past weekend, new 08RT I heard and noise from the Rear Brake. Only when using the rear pedal only. When using the hand brake no noise

anything on the disc? How hard are you braking?

there doesn't appear to be anything on the disc. And it is most noticeable under "normal" braking. When I hit the brakes hard I don't notice it. My 600 mi service is next week, I'll be sure to bring it up then. JD
