The brakes on my 16 standard are also quiet.
On a different note, I've always thought the bottom tank seam was a little unfinished. Found some rubber door edge trim that fits very well. https://ebay.to/2OP05Yo
I think it really adds to the look with minimal cost and effort. One piece goes around the entire tank from seat to seat. It took about 2 minutes to install.
I've done similar with a strip of black insulation tape along the exposed seam, I think I seen it originally on one of the TEC YouTube videos were they painted the seam matt black to give the appearance of a seamless tank, if you stand back a few feet the seam virtually disappears into the black above the engine, surprising how big a difference it makes especially on a white or silver bike, I know on my silver tank the weld pattern is really obvious under the paint so that annoyed me as well.
