    My XTR brakes are doing somthing ..

    Weird, I still have power but I get a funny scraping sound comming form the rotors when I brake hard . I checked the pads for wear , but they are ok. I also have a pulsating sound/feeling comming threw the brake levers .. I checked that my roter was warped , but it is as flush and as str8 as can be. any clues ?

    clean'em

    Try cleaning the disk with rubbing alchohol on an old clean t-shirt. Clean the pads with a different part of the shirt that has been folded over a couple of times and then wet with the alchohol by pulling it into the slot for the rotor and drawing it back and forth. Repeat till the rag doesn't get dirty.
