Before anyone asks, I did a search, and did what I could to try and remedy this problem. My setup is this:
Avid Juicy 5's, whatever year was black and had the single bolt bar clamps. This issue is just with the front brake which is an 8" rotor (new, rode it yestrday only). The brakes are used and the EBay seller didn't include the rotor by accident so I had to get the new one. I see from the wear marks on the rotor that the pads were hitting the arms and overlapping onto them by about 3mm - I spaced it out correctly and the pulsing is still the same. I can see very dark almost "burns" on the problem area of the rotor which is about 1/5 of its rotation. This part of it's rotation will just about lock up no matter how lightly I'm touching the brakes. The pads are fairly new and worn evenly. I'm at somewhat of a loss of what to do. Any other suggestions? I'm going to measure the rotor thickness with a dial caliper in a few minues to see if it's way out of spec or something.
Thanks in advance!
