rotor replacement

3 posts in this topic

Hey Guys,

I had to replace my rear rotor. Fit up a new OEM and scott shark fin. Problem the new rotor/pads has a slight drag. Is this normal? I can spin the tire with one go pull and the tire will rotate freely about 2 turns. You can hear a little rub as the tire spins. I am not sure where to go from here.... I took a 5 min ride and when I got back touched the rotor. It was hot. I would not be able to leave my hand on the rotor for 5-10 seconds.

Any help would be appreciated

None of that sounds very unusual, really. Disc pads don't "return" or draw back from the rotor when you release the brake, and they normally run pretty hot.
