My '04 Louise FR disks were working great. Then I had to take the front wheel off. I pushed the pads back and let them readjust when I put the wheel back on but they rubbed a little bit. I tried it again with the same result. I tried different tensions on the QR and rotating the axel with no luck. The inner pad was too close and rubbed a little. Finally, I removed the wheel, pushed the pads back, and reinstalled. Then I put a business card between the inner pad and the rotor and pulled the lever a few times to readjust. This allowed the outer pad to contact the rotor with the inner pad a short distance away. Voila. No more rubbing. I think the caliper resistance is not quite the same on each side so when readjusting the inner it would contact the rotor and deflect it a little before the outer hit. This left the inner too close.
