Ok, so here's the story. I recently replaced the front brake pads. The previous ones were looooow. I changed the fluid too. Fluid level is just below the maximum fill line. So anyway, the front wheel would basically free wheel with the old brake pads in the resting position - there was only a small amount of drag. Then I put the new pads in and now the front wheel has a strong amount of drag - it wont free wheel - a good hoike gets a third to half a turn. Is this explained as simply as saying that the pads are slightly over tolerance in thickness? The consequence of this drag is that it heats up the disc and the pads are glazing. This means the front squeaks and squeals noticeably at slow speeds and if it's been a while between braking, the first use is as wooden as Pamela Anderson's acting. The brakes are otherwise functioning normally. Sooo, thoughts please. What's with the extra drag? FTR, the brake pads are the "metal gear" http://www.metalgear.com.au organic pad, which are an inexpensive OEM replacement... I'm not sure I'd recommend them though - they certainly feel like a step down from the OEM pads - but that could be the glazing issue????
