-__ Ideas or Rotors__-

07- Suzuki Hayabusa

I have been fighting a dragging issue with my front rotors. I had 1 that looked a little bent so Replaced it but still making the same scrapping noise... I ordered all new seals and pistons for the calipers and completely rebuilt them. And still having the problem. I just want to buy NEW rotors. The nitrous is finished and need to be able to stop LOL. At this point in time Don't want to drop 710 bucks on Galfers. So anyone with some experience in some other nice rotors.

Did you replace the pads after you got new rotors. I know it's a stupid question, but it's a start.

Drag? U mean u hear them rubbing the pads with out lever pulled in? If so they all do that. I've never owned a bike that didn't rub....if it's slowing ur bike down or ur overheating the rotor then thats a problem.

Yes its not a normal drag. and yes if you pick up the front of the bike the front wheel dont spin very well its draging pretty good.. I am just going to change the rotors but wondering if people have had anyy luck with Rotors like these.

I don't want to say no cause I haven't looked at that very close but I had the whole front tire off and didn't notice any. but when I get home I am going to be pulling the wheel back off..

You seem to know what you are talking about so I don't mean to be insulting, but...

I don't think changing rotors is gonna fix your problem. Unless they are warped, rotors don't make brakes drag.
What makes brakes drag are things like pistons not retracting, misaligned pads, incorrect pads, improperly installed calipers, etc.
If the rotors are even close to flat and straight then they are not the problem. Even if they got thicker, and that seems unlikely, the pads should reset themselves to accomodate the new thickness the first time you applied the brakes.
Unless you just "want" new rotors I believe you need to look elsewhere for the solution.

If you pull the calipers off, dose it still drag? wheel spacers on wrong or the wheel its self binding?

Pull the wheel off it spins fine its something in the calipers or rotors. but could be something else been a good month or more since I have looked at it.

Its been getting a Fogger kit installed and haven't had time to worry about the front end till that was done lol. Got my priorities in the right direction huh LOL...


But all should be solved or in a way better insight come Tuesday It goes to Patrick "Motorcycles Unlimited" Since I will already be in Houston in some class training. I am going to run it by their and let them check it out. I just don't have the time anymore with all this out of town/Country traveling and Before we just start throwing parts at it...

Loosen the fork axle pinch bolts and caliper bolts. Pump the front end down a few times, then tighten the pinch bolts to spec and then tighten the caliper bolts to spec.

Have you replaced the levers. There are so many inexpensive levers that cause a break drag issue.

Rotors (unless your current ones are clearly bent) are not going to fix your issue.
