HH Sintered Brake Pad Issue

It seems one of the pads is not grabbing all o my rotor on one side. I turned my rotors before installation and did a proper break in procedure, I have ridden over 700 miles with then installed and only just noticed this today after a good ride with my wife. I don't really use my brakes much as I ride 95% interstate, so maybe thy just need some more breaking in. I just want some feedback and a second opinion on this, thanks

Installation issue would be my guess, something has tilted that pad.
Hung on one of the anti-squeel springs ?

It's worth pulling it down and having a really good look.

Yeh

Pull it apart look at pins etc. before the rotor gets a problem

Once I was upside down in the twilight in the dark in my truck pads fell out and I put them in mostly by feel, then the new brakes squealed. I had installed them backwards and the steel was against the rotor discovered by the guy doing the alignment

They had a good laugh at me and I was in for a new rotor in 20 miles

Thanks guys, I didn't think about the installation, I'll pull it apart this afternoon and check it out, it might be hung on the anti squeal plate
