2009 Yamaha R6 Raven.
2012 Yamaha R1 Moto GP Edition

2009 R6 brake pads hissing.

This weekend I took my r6 to get its 600 mile service. When I got it back I notice when I apply the front brake anytime over 40 mph the front brake makes a hissing noise. Its quite loud because I can even hear it over all the wind noise on the freeway. The bike still seems to stop fine, but I don't want to take any chances. It didn't used to do this before I took it to get serviced. I am not sure what it might be but I just want to get some info if anyone has any before I take it back to Yamaha and ask them what it is.

Thanks for the help.

Hard to say, it is common for there to be some hissing but hearing it at freeway speeds does seem a little excessive.
