New ceramic brake squeals

I have one front disc that squeals after it gets hot (lot of stop and go) when the brakes are applied firmly. Roter or caliper issue? I've used the same ceramics on other cars with no issue, indeed, the left brake works fine. Want to fix it this weekend, any idears?

Did you have the rotors turned, if not it will do that until they are set in, which could take longer if you didn't have the rotors smoothed out.

Try gluing the pad to the caliper or applying grease to the backing.

Pad squeal is from pad vibration, high frequency. The glue or grease will change that to a frequency you can't hear.

Fixed it...

took some 80 grit w/d to the rotor, and knocked the glaze off the brake with the same, and put 'er all back together. It stil squeaked a little, but I rode with the brake applied for a few 2 second bursts and they seated in...
