Rear brake locked on him guys
OP had the front locked up...
....the front brakes completely locked up sending me over the bars,
My boots and gloves were untouched, helmet had a little scratch. I think I have read every post known to man on the subject but hadn't thought about the pads being too thick.
If you had too thick pads, shouldn't it be dragging from the moment you installed them on the bike?
Although, if they dragged they should also have faster wear.
I've only witnessed drag to a friends gixxer who had some braking(<-brand) brake disks installed and they were thicker than stock brake disks.But even there, his brake didn't lock up, just the brake disk got a little blue-ish from the heat...
Also, on my 636 which i didn't have ss lines, if brakes got hot (going down a curvy mountain in summer) then it made my brake lever soft and i had less braking power.I know that was because of my stock brake lines, but it makes me hard to believe that you have the exact opposite result because you do have ss lines...
Maybe there is something wrong with your master cylinder and fluid doesn't go back to the fluid reservoir?I know that Suzuki that uses the exact same master cylinder made a recall for all models since 2004 and replaces master cylinder and brake lines for free.I wonder why...
