I came from automobile and when we made brake service, we put permatex brake lube on sliddings parts but when i made a brake service on my motorcycle, im hesitant to put brake lube on sliddings parts on brake pads & calipers, do i need to put lube like in automobile or it was best to dont put anything?

Treat it the same as an automotive brake job. Use an approved brake lubricant , and use it correctly .

Not there from the Factory says something here....just say'in
it certainly is there from the factory, and if you read the service manual,it clearly tells you to lube the sliding points..Page 6 shows what to use, and page 172 shows where to apply it

I also like to put some high temp grease on the back of the pads to stop high frequency vibration that sounds like squeaking.
