Rear Brake Rotor XR650R

2 posts in this topic

I just had a shop put some new pads on my rear brake. After I ride the bike and never touch the rear brake the rotor is warm to hot. This means it is dragging a little. Should I be worried about premature wear or forget about it. I had this same thing on a BMW and the mechanic said it is normal for the pad to be barely touching the rotor. I`m not so sure. Also, he didn´t resurface the rotor. I´m wondering if I could do this while the rotor is on the bike or remove it and do it properly or just let the pads seat in the old grooves. I´ve seen machines that resurface rotors on front wheel drive cars while still attached to the hub.
