Question Low Speed Front End Squeak

Like the title says, on my F800GS, when I'm going slow (under 10 mph), there's a squeaking noise coming from somewhere in the front end. The front brakes also squeak as my speed slows (probably anywhere under 15-20 mph). Anyone have a similar experience? Thoughts on what it might be?

I searched the archive, but couldn't find anything relevant to the first issue. Second issue seems like it might be glazing on the pads, but there's over 600 miles on the brakes, so I would imagine that's no longer the issue.

How about lifting the front wheel and giving it a spin. Could be the pads on the discs. Only other thing is the wheel bearings.

If you have a centre stand don't forget to tie it forward before jacking up the front!
