I don't know what the buzz sound is, but mine still make that noise after about 10,000 miles.

And add me to the database. No problems with EBC HH and my rotors.

Seragua, I noticed the same thing on mine just today. Sounds like it is normal.

My new EBC front pads also make the sound. The new rears don't

No problems with my HH pads although they do not last long - some times only 1,500 miles

Depends on usage I guess. The good news of course is that if the pads are wearing this is clear evidence that the rotors (discs) are not

Thats true. I mainly ride curves/mountains so the front brakes get heavy usage per mile vs highway riding/commuting. My EBC rotor is fine at 26,000 miles

Could anyone tell me about the reason of this sound?
I ran into this on my last bike. An annoying buzzing noise, sounds like one of those cicada bugs. From what I've heard it has to do with the design of the pad trapping gas/heat making the noise. The OEM pads had 4 sections, the EBC only 2, that's apparently the cause, but it's nothing to worry about, just kind of annoying. It was way louder on my last bike, lol, drove me crazy for awhile.

Thanks for your replies. Flood, you've got it: a cicada, that's quite a similar sound. I don't like it very much, because sometimes it sounds really loud. Hope it will become lower.
