Installed new wave rotors/pads now - problems
So my front brakes were pretty worked when i got the bike, the pads were low and the rotors were warped, I had bad chatter/squeal so i decided to swap them out with a nice set of wave rotors and ebc pads.
now I noticed after a few rides, about 2-300 miles that the front wheel will not rotate freely, i have to put a lot of effort to turn it a full revolution while its up on the front stand. This cant be normal, as it will produce drag and extra wear on the motor, not to mention hurt gas mileage .
The only solution i can think of would be to let the pads wear down naturally? Either that or take them back out and shave them down to allow more free play on the rotor. what can I adjust to compensate for this? what went wrong with the install? Do i have a stuck piston? I made sure to clean everything up before re-mounting.
anyone else with this problem?
