Current ride: XB12R, 1190RX
I have been getting a high pitched buzzing noise coming from the front end of my XB12R, its only there when the bike is on the move and gets a little louder on braking. Thought it was the pads so I changed them, but alas its still there, nothing else seems to be out of place or worn, wheel bearings are not getting warm and there doesn't appear to be any play in anything.

Anyone had a similar issue ?
