I had my 04 thruxton off the ground before I noticed the front wheel seems to have a lot of drag. (or at least a lot for me, I'm used to working on racecars that will spin for a long time) If I spin the wheel it won't make a couple of revolutions. Does anyone know if there is a specific amount of drag on these?

Thanks

Front tire drag

Mine does the same thing, apparently the pads don't retract fully and therefore brush slightly against the front disc. Iv'e never had a problem with it, even checking the disc after a few miles of riding to see if it's heating up, it wasn't.
When you spin my front tire, it goes about two turns and stops.
Lets see what others are doing with it.

A slight drag is completely normal.

I would think a Sight drag would be normal, but my front wheel won't actually make a complete revolution...
