How much did you bleed.....

when you did the install Kirk?

I would take the advice on Rennlist, and bleed some more......

perhaps you got the cheaper Zimmerman rotors that come with the slight bend in them......lol......(sorry folks, inside joke).

Do you have a good bleeder? I can give you one if you need one.

I never opened any lines....so no bleeding was done. I was able to move the calipers enough to pull the rotors off.

I have a pressure bleeder....although it leaks like a sieve sometimes!

Could this problem be caused by improper bedding? I did follow the manufactures instructions, but maybe I should have waited a little longer before braking hard.

The brakes never pulsed prior to the rotor/pad change, and I highly doubt the rotor is warped.

I've double checked the installation and I don't see anything wrong. When turning the rotor without the wheel installed there is definitely a "sticky" area during the rotation. Visually I don't see anything on the rotor....in fact I can still see the machining marks. Without the pads in, the rotor spins freely.

Can the rotor be cleaned? Steel wool, sandpaper, etc??
