Dont ride the brake so that wasnt the problem. The dragging is so load people in a car running could hear them when I stopped next to them. Very loud unless i apply them hard. I did contact EBC for a part number and they suggested the ones for touring not the HH. But I see the HH are highly recomended. FA231HH their part number. Thanks
That is the WRONG part nmber for the VOYAGER/VAQUERO front calipers. The correct part nmber is FA158 HH. I do not recommend anything but EBC HH pads, there are the only brand and type i use and sell.
This being the internet I believe this is a good example of how someone is trying to explain a "noise" and it can be interpreted soooooo many ways.
To clarify "Brake drag" ONLY OCCURS
when the brakes are NOT being applied. Brake drag means the pads are dragging against the rotors excessively when the brakes are not being applied.
You are complaining about a noise DURING brake application so that is NOT brake drag. It is a noise generated during brake application and is a result of one or more causes.
I bet you are hearing a grinding/rumbling/groaning type noise? These Vulcans have solid mounted rotors onto cast wheels and in certain brake applications there is a harmonic resonance that occurs as a result of the dissimmilar metals having different frequencies at which they will vibrate. Thru my years of working on skoots I have experienced this a few times.
This did occur on my Vaq, it was not usually during hard or heavy braking but might occur just as I was coming to a stop. It mostly happened at the lower speeds/normal braking.
One trick I used and have used for some time was to go out and really STOMP on that front brake many times, the noise went away after awhile.
I ride hard and use my front brakes pretty good, I eventually warped my rotors!
Your skoot is very young and in no way needs new pads. I would suggest give it some more time, perform some aggressive stops and allow what I have termed "for everything to season in". Might sound kinda weird but give it a try.
Again EBC's listing for pads is INCORRECT, so if you decide to go that route get the FA 158 HH pads. My skoot has over 40,000 mls on it, already changed the rears to HH pads and love the braking improvement, when I get my new rotors I'll do the HH pads at the same time.
