During the trail ride, and after a pressure wash, no noise. It may have been the disc quiet I applied to the back of the pads setting in though. Or the dirt filled in the gaps.
I agree with the sand paper, deglasing. That helped with mine. Also, I recently read in Dirt Bike magazine to never use any kind of detergent soap around your rotors. It appearntly leads to a film build up that can add to the squeeling
