Sorry, couldnt resist. I actually have a very similar problem on my rear brake. Had put it down to shiny pads but presume yours are newish and bedded in.

Almost impossible to find the cause for this when I have had it.... found replacing the rotor can help

Wonder if you need to re-centre the caliper Mark? If one side is contacting before the other it may produce high frequency vibration  Undecided

Will give it a try...

Are shimano rotors compatible with elixirs?

get a nail file and chamfer the leading edge of the pad, should do the trick. Also a dab of copper slip on the back of the pad where it contacts the piston.

Ok will try also. I have put copper slip on already but suppose I could put a bit more on.
