My '04 is not too loud on cold start up, but gets pretty bad when hot. I wear ear plugs. That seems to cut out all of the mechanical noise, but not the music of the Akras..

After braking, I would feel both rotors, to make sure they both are working. They should both be pretty hot. Maybe the line got crimped, or for some reason only one caliper is working.

I think it was 05.5 here. You can see, if the rotor is one piece, it is non flaoting. THe floaters have a center hub connected to the rotor by circular rivets. They are also less expensive.

I agree with Kamanya, it looks like the front fender to caliper mount bolt.

It looks too clean, but make sure it is not one of the swingarm chain slider mounting bolts.

The O-ring was leaking, The piston seemed to be cocking a little, and scuffed the bore. It wasn't much, but it made a mess under the slave. I cleaned it up and installed new slave and no more leak.
