This past weekend I put new brakes on my 07 10r, Nissin calipers, spiegler lines, and galfer pads. I went out on sunday with a group of very fast riders and put my bike through my limits, definetly rode her harder than ever before. Well my new brakes worked wonderfully, they for sure saved my @$$ more than once. They were noisy all day with a winding noise but they worked well and towards the end of the day at lower speeds they squeeked a bit, not terribly though. Today(Wednesday) I rode her to work, all seemed fine, on the way home even until I got off on my last exit I heard what sounded like crunching, as I rode into my neighborhood I tested them out from about 20 to 0 hard on the brakes and I get a violent shudder now, I bled and bled but that seems fine, but still I get the shudder. Are my rotors warped somehow? I'm lost everything seemed great till tonight. Does anyone have any clues? Thanks

truthfully I bought the galfer gold pads and installed them on my bike with the stock rotors and it had a little more head shake at low speeds and I noticed after about a week that it was eating my rotors ect, so I bleed the brakes and took them back off and returned them and yes returned them to cycle gear stating that they were causing damage to my bike. They ended up giving so many galfer black pads I wont ever have to buy them again haha, never had headshake or anything since, even though my stock rotors are toast now, in the nexted couple months they have to go!!!
yeah I just read that, I would put new with new, the wear on them would not be constant if you used new and old, same thing goes with sprockets and chains
yeah a lot of people buy sprockets and chains at different times, just not me!!!
