That is mostly caused in time, it also depends on how it is maintained and what quality brake pad is being used and if it's original OEM disks or a cheap aftermarket replacement.

If it's been ridden with worn or a low quality pads it also tends to happen.

Buy good quality disks, replace the pads before they are worn and maintain it. Front brakes is HELL important - take care of them :flex:
