Recommended Posts

installed new pads(ebc) 1-2hrs on new pads hard riding, front brake drags and lever is spongy, reverse bleed the system with fresh maxima oil, still the same problems, also the rotor is not bent. could it be the brake line? 18hrs on bike

I will not buy EBC pads because i had a problem with them a few years back......

If they worked fine before, it is probably the pads...... Stick with OEM

I would not run out and buy new pads but try to take the EBC pads out, put your old ones in and see if the problem persists and then install the EBCs again........is what I would try

i ran ebc on my yamaha and the wheel dragged a little more than the orginal pads, maybe do to the higher friction of the pads, i dont know! the real problem is how spongy the lever is, i got a couple ideas to try and hopefully i can get it fixed!
