I started noticing some pulling of my front brakes here recently so I decided to inspect it yesterday. My left side outer brake pad was grinding away at an angle and I think the culprit was the retaining pin that the pads also slide on. It had all kinds of rough spots on it as well as a little rust. The other side was just as bad even though the pads were wearing normal. I cleaned them up, took an emery cloth to them and then some high temp grease and put them back together with a new set of EBC pads as well as bled the brake lines (it was past due for that). I went with Vic pads when I changed them out a couple of years ago but man these EBC's really stop the bike. I think Ricz mentioned in the past not to put an EBC HH on the back brake and I can see why because they stop almost too good!
