Every once in awhile I hear a very high pitch grinding noise that seems to be coming from the left front of my bike. It only happens once in a while and only last from 1-2 seconds..not constant. I just installed a new air horn, but nothing seems to be scrapping when I turn full left or right. I only have 6000 miles on my bike so I dont think it the clutch. Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

Does it change with brake application? I had a squeal that would come on with certain bumps, or after lightly applying the brakes. I pulled the caliper pin covers back and lubed the pins which helped alot. The caliper pins get dry and this lets the pad rub the disk.
