The brake pads could be contacting the rotor! Seems to be a common noise on this bike.

Warriordog had a front axle cut nearly in two. His bearing started slipping on the axle. He had no warnings for quite a while. You did not describe the noise completely, but you need to do a good check of everything. There is one noise that was common with the early warriors when using the front brake. That is an easy fix.

Brake Pad noise or wheel bearing noise is his culprit.
How many miles on the pads ?
Did the noise start after any repairs or service work ?
Does the noise increase or decrease while stopping ?

- get the bike off the ground, or at least the front wheel.
- spin the wheel with your hand.
- apply the break and release....repeat this several times to see if it affect the grinding sound...see if it gets louder, or if it lessons.
- how longs it been since the bike was driven. it could be dirt or a small pebble that got wedged in between the brake pad and the rotor.
- is your rotor rusted at all?
- could be your caliper not releasing all the way....might require you to pull the caliper and inspect the pads, see if they are "glazed". They may need to be replaced.
- if the caliper is not releasing all the way, this could be a couple of things.
- low on brake fluid,
- brake fluid is old and crappy, needs to be replaced.
- did any of your rotor bolts loosen....simple check is fine....

good luck, this will keep you busy for a little while...

It will be easier to help you if you post some pictures of your Warrior. Maybe in your Profile Album, or maybe right here in this thread. So can you post several pictures of your front wheel from different angles? Maybe we will see something obvious. Or maybe its just dirt and needs to be washed. But pictures will possibly help answer this question.

Hey one of the members had a strange noise and the shot a short video of it and the members could give better direction. Pictures are great but a short video might be more beneficial in this situation. Thanks.
