    pads are dragging

    I replaced the front brake lines and pads about a month ago, and now the pads drag a TINY bit with the lever released. It's enough that you can hear them squeaking some times, and I think it's making the discs run a little hot. I'm gonna bleed the lines again, but I don't really think that's the problem... Any ideas?

    Galfer green pads, I'm not particularly worried about it, and I imagine as they bed in it will probably go away... We'll see, I guess.

    make sure that the wheel is lined up before tightening the front end up. I had the same deal with 929 when I replaced my tire at Jays with JC last year.

    oh yeah, a couple stoppies won't fix it either, although you might try it.
