Ah. That makes a lot of sense. I think I could hear the old pads rubbing of the discs before I did the new install.Well over time the sliders and pistons become sticky and ‘bind’ so the pads remain in contact with the disk so sapping precious power. This is more prevalent in rear disk brakes of any bike as they are dirty and little used but fronts need living too... when you replaced the pads, cleaned and pushed back the pistons and generally cleaned up the sliders it makes the whole thing a little more efficient and releases the disk when the brake is off. Not saying that’s what it definitely is but it could easily be...
Really, really good. Definite improvement over the stock ones. Another good upgrade choice.How’s them rear shocks working out?
