Read a lot about the upgrade to EBC HH brake pads on the Thruxton. So I went out and bought a set. I went to install them on my bike this weekend, but I had trouble getting the caliper over the rotor. The new pads are touching and have no space between them for the rotor to fit. Can anyone help me with this? I am sure it is something simple that I am not doing.

Sounds like you have not pushed the pistons back in the bores. Before you do clean off any grunge on the pistons. Then use a screw driver between the pads to push the pistons in. Make sure your resevoir is not too full or it will over flow or prevent the pistons from going back.-good luck-T1
