Re: Rotors?

Also I will say this. Looking through my rim down at the pads, it looks like tge pads arent fully seated against the rotor. And I can see on the rotor that a wear mark is only close to the center. About 1 inch wide. Like the complete pad usnt hitting the rotor

Re: Rotors?

I did bed them correctly. One thing I've noticed from looking at the diy's, trying ti see if I messed something up. I took off the entire caliper, undid the 2- 16mm bolts. Then I seperated the carrier. Wiped off the guide pins and lightly greased them with hi temp disc brake grease. I see other ppl just pulled off the rubber caps and unscrewed the guide pins, wiped them off no greasing. I wonder if my pads are sticking in the slots. Have driven 200 miles since install

I believe the correct stuff is high temp ceramic brake parts lubricant.
