Angry Brakes Squeaking bad....

I purchased a used 2004 660 Rhino and the brakes have squeaked from the day I bought it. I went to a local dealer and they told me that Yamaha had come out with some new pads that solved this problem. I bought new sets for the entire rhino and installed them. This took away the squeak for about a week and then it started again. I have also tried the red brake backer gunk and grease on the back of the pads like 2 dealers have suggested. Still the brakes squeak terrible. I am so frustrated that I am about to sell the unit and buy another brand.

I can't believe I own the only Rhino with this problem and my 2 local dealers cannot come up with a solution. I am certainly not a brake mechanic but cannot believe I should have to ride listening to this horrible chirpping.

Has anyone out there had squeaky brakes and what did you do to silence them?

Desperate and frustrated in Michigan....

Welcome to the world of owning a rhino or any offroad UTV/ATV for that matter. They all squeek after running them through dirt, mud, water, snow, etc.
I put a set of EBC severe duty brake pads on my 08 and that seemed to help alot. Now the only squeeking I still have is from the e-brake.
Your 04 has 1 rear disc that handles both the rear braking and e-brake duties so you should be fine as long as you replace it also.

If i am understanding on this noise issue, where I am hearing that never ending noise is from the drive shaft E-brake. that has a pad or it just clamps to the disk? mine is a 07 450.
any cures to eliminate it, usually when you take off slow it squeaks and squeaks .
