Default now the front brake noise :)

okey here is my problem sometimes brakes giving noise like howling and i can fell it in my handlebar too.But just only one spot when the pads passed i can hear and feel the noise but sometimes i dont feel or hear at all.What can it be?
IS it my pads worn or my disc?Or the wheel bearings?
Sorry for the bad english i hope you understand it.

You can usually see the pads if you get down close and look. If they are under about 1,1-1/2mm or so thick on both sides......I'd replace them for sure. Not hard to do.

Jack up the front of your bike, eyeball it from the front while spinning it by hand. Maybe you can narrow things down from there.

Could be your pads are glazed. A little sanding would fix that.

If the pads are OK, try cleaning the rotors with some brake clean and maybe a scotch-brite pad.
