1983 GL1100 Aspencade front brake pads

Post by ptrumblejr » Mon Oct 07, 2019 1:18 am

i bought 3 sets of pads for my Aspencade under the information that both front and rear calipers use the same pad. I started with stand alone LH caliper and it wont go back over the rotor with the pads on. Even if i got it to go it would be so tight that i dont think the wheel would turn. i bought ECCPP brand pads 16949. i rebuilt the caliper so the pistons are completely compressed.

Help Please

The Aspencades take a different pad than the Interstate and standard...perhaps you have the wrong pads?
