Hi folks. I've been experiencing a short of shuttering, low, growling noise just as my 2006 400 comes to a stop. It happens everytime once my speed almost hits zero. I don't really feel anything but hear this growling noise come from the front end.
Any ideas what it could be or if it's a serious problem?
Thanks

If anyone has ever used a high-pressure washer hose
at the car-wash on the front wheel hub, you may now
have dry front wheel bearings. ( that's a no no )
Or...brake disc pads against the disc.....??

No to high pressure cleaning. It's only been in the rain once. I've got 6400 miles on it and other than this issue it runs pretty good.
I could have the local shop check out the brake pads I guess.

Get a can of brake cleaner and spray liberally on the rotors and the pads , while spinning the wheel works better.

It could also be the speedo sensor has separated/broke.
Is you speedometer jumping around or erratic?
Also a pebble or road trash caught in the brake caliber can growl at you.

Found the problem. My front fender was loose and the vibrations when the brakes kicked in were causing the strange low-pitched noise.:cool:

The '06 Burgman 400 I test drove yesterday had the same thing and I'm glad I found your post.
