New R1 Rotors and Ceramic Pads Loud Squeal

Recently installed R1 Geomet Rotors and Ceramic pads I followed their bed in procedure as best as possible living in the city. I have developed an embarrassingly loud squeal as soon as the brakes get some heat in them. It started after @ 150-200mi. Is this normal, or is there something I can do? I had no squealing with my factory rotors and Brembo pads. Really makes stopping not fun, especially in the convertible.

I have the same issue. They stop great, they look great, but the squeal is absolutely driving me crazy.

You can’t have a dust free, noiseless high performing brake pad. There will be a compromise somewhere.

Try applying anti-squeal lube.
