    I've also got the 314 mm disks on mine but they'd been on a good while before I had this problem. Well it's not so much of a problem as it turned out to be a stone. It was trapped between the disk and the metal dust cover. A slight modification sorted it. Is bend it a tad more out the way haha.

    Guys when I changed the discs I did not see a guard so surely if I couldn see it it would not be able to catch on the disc? Or does it catch on something else?

    the shyte shield is a big shield that protects the disk from excess dirt, if it's not catching then thats good, if it's only squeeling when you brake i would sugguest using some copper slip on the pad's..

    This is what was causing my wheels to squeel like hell. Extremely simple to fix. Wheel off, screw driver, bend it back, job done.
