The only time the sound is lessened is when you are on the throttle more than 25% or letting off the throttle while still in gear. Push in the clutch, sound seems to just appear. Or if you are just light throttle crusing.

if you roll very very slow, it even sound like wood creaking like you were calling a turkey or rubbing on a balloon.

hope that helps

check for a rock or something wedged between shield and rotor.... is it just one side and not the other... swap sides with wheels and see if it follows one wheel/tire combo
