    I FINALLY figured out my problem with the brakes. I would be the fastest mechanic around if I only did things right the first time!! There was a little 1" square spring metal part that fell out when I took the pads out. I was not sure where it came from, so I put it on the top of the pads in the area of the V shaped tensioner. WRONG!! After much frustration and assembly/disassembly, I looked in the shop manual more closely. The part is not numbered or mentioned, but is shown. It went in the front mounting to provide fore/aft tension and a smooth surface for the pads to slide on. Now, all seems to be well. Thanks again for the consultation call.

    Hello Rob
    I don't have your phone or I would call or text. I put a set of EBC pads or the rear and the rotor in getting way to hot to touch after only about 20 miles. Do you have any experience with these pads? I believe I read something about this on the forum but not sure.

    Thanks

    Rob,

    Stuart here from Seattle. I have an 07 DL1000. Can I come to the tech day? I really don't have anything to work on right now but I'm sure I will by the 2nd of April. Plus I want to learn a little something about my bike! What is your address?

    Thanks!

    Stuart
