Rear brakes "groaning"

Wasn't really sure what sub-forum this should go in so, please excuse me if I've posted in the wrong place.

For a while now I get an intermittent "groan" from the rear brake during low speed braking. The bike only has 8800mi on it. Pads look fine. Rotor looks fine. I'm guessing it could be something akin to glazing.
They still work well. Just wondering if there's a fix for the noise.

Has anyone experienced anything similar?

Might have some dirt on the guides that the pads slide on. This can keep the pads up against the rotor causing your noise. Take them apart clean all parts and apply some brake grease on the back of the pads.
you can take some fine sandpaper on the pads if your worried about glazing, brake clean on the rotors.

If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

My 2015 RGs does exactly the same thing. Haven't done anything about it yet. Brakes work fine. Have you found a cur?
