Great information! Thanks, Cali! If you can't cut the pads yourself, where can you take them to be cut?

Havent played w them yet. I wanted to break them in slowly. Once warm from riding around the block they will grip well. First brake in the morning is weak.

I told you about the fork oil... if you sit on the bike and the bike drops in the front 2-3 inches, the fork oil is low

That was my problem. You're still welcome to come ride mine and see how it differs

Well I guarantee I will not be riding it if and when it looks like that. I may even cover it in a tarp when I tow it to Motorcycles Unlimited for service.
