This is the first comment about brake dust. How does the surface of the disc appear to be? If its kinda rough, that needs to be addressed. If its smooth, replace the pads. Many, including myself, have found EBC HH pads to be superior to the originals.

I LOVE (absolutely LOVE) my 2012 XCT, however it is the SOOTIEST and dirtiest bike I have ever owned...and while White looks fantastic clean...this bike gets SOOTY and DIRTY within a mile after leaving this house.

I am running EBC pads on the front and rear.

I ran the EBC Organic pads on the back of my Kingpin and got tons of brake dust. The pads also didn't last very long at all. I went back to the Victory pads and the brake dust went away. I think the answer is in the type of pads. These don't grip as well, but now I just hit them a little harder.

The rotor is in good shape, no heavy wear as this bike has just over 1100 miles on it. very sooty though. i purposely lay off the rear brake because it is brutal with the soot. I will check out the hh ebc's and see if it helps. was also wondering if it may be a bit of the belt wearing in as well?

You should be getting nothing off your belt. If you are, do not pass GO--go directly to your dealer and have it adjusted correctly.
Rear brake should nbot get much use anyway, other than fast deceleration, trail braking around tight curves and hill holding.

I didn't think the dust was that till I got my new 23" wheel. It shows the dust much worse than the stock wheel. I am thinking I will be getting new pads WAAAYYY before they need replaced. The dust bugs me a bit, but the lack of initial bite is quite worrisome. I had a similar problem on my HD, but I fixed it with Lyndall Racing Z-Plus pads. I plan to do the same with my Vic (much sooner than later). Great reduction in dust, and night and day difference in bite. One thing my HD does better than my XC.....

Racing pads take longer to warm up and aren't as effective until they do. Street pads do their thing immediately. Many here are very satisfied their choice of EBC HH pads. I have them only on the front as I don't want the rear locking up under heavy braking while riding solo.

The Z-plus aren't "racing" pads. The name of the company is Lyndall Racing.
Here is from their description
A matrix of carbon/Kevlar and non-ferrous metal similar to L.R.B. Gold Plus Pads in stopping performance, but softened slightly to provide longer service life in the lower temperature ranges found in common street use
