Default EBC pad problems

I installed the FA196HH rear pads on my 2012 xct and it started making a hell of a noise right at the point the bike settles after a complete stop. Not a squeak, but a really loud metal to metal sound.
I called EBC and talked to a tech guy who said if shims were needed they would have included them in the package so remove the OEM shims which I did.

It still makes the same loud noise and now I can't get a return phone call from EBC.

I pulled the new pads and notice what looks like rubbing marks where the pistons touch the Pads, I'm sure thats what making the noise.

Anyone else have this problem and is anyone else installing the OEM shims on aftermarket pads,

Ostbob, that sound is a high frequency set up between the pad backer and pistons.
Did you notice any thin, perforated sheet metal devices on the backs of the old pads and did you transfer them to the new ones? If you still have the old ones, check to see if they are there and if they are, remove them and put them on the backs of the new ones.
If there were no such shims, get some Brake Quiet and apply it to the backs per the directions.

The OEM only had a shim and insulator on the inboard side nothing on the piston side (See Pic of OEM and EBC.) and I have since thrown them away.

NO perforated thin sheet metal on either. Just a solid one and an insulator on the inboard side.

I can't seem to get the EBC tech to return my calls so now I need help from guys like you who have actually used them. But like I said I originally put the shims and insulator on the EBC and had this terrible noise (not a squeak). Removed them and still have the same noise.

When I look at the EBC pads where the piston touch the back it looks almost like the piston dug in or scraped the metal plate but hard to see in the pictures

But your suggestion is to use the OEM shim, insulator pad and a, brake quite lube?

take a grinder and bevel the leading edge slightly. i use to use duct tape on the back of my brake pads to quiet them.

+1 on beveling the leading edges. Use the shim OR Brake Quiet, which is a substance that that does not dry hard.

Followed all the advice from you guys, thank You.

Cycle Gear allowed me to exchange the EBC pads for new ones. I installed them allong with the OEM shims, and brake quiet. Glad I only trashed the OEM pads and not the shims and insulator after talking to the EBC Tech who obviously didn't know what he was talking about.

So far its working great but I need to seat the pads some more before I do any hard braking.
