Took off my Galfer Greens and replaced with new pads. (hated the greens, they weren't worn out, but just didn't like them)
Now the front right brake pads rub. I was careful replacing the pads not to bend the rotors or anything. Brakes were fine before the new pads.
Its a very uniform consistent rub. not intermittent, but in a revolution of the wheel the sound is the same the whole way around.
That front right rotor on a very short ride (4 minutes) got much hotter than the others. Not crazy hot, but very noticeably hotter.
Only other thing i noticed was the front brake is REALLY stiff. use to be a fraction of an inch before the brake grabbed, but now just a slight pull on the front brake and it grabs hard.
Do I need to bleed out brake fluid or something? I've never added fluid.
Bike has 31,000 miles on it. This is my 3rd set of pads. Originals, then galfer greens, now these new ones.
