My front rotor(s) are rubbing in one spot. When I kill the engine and roll down the driveway I can hear the slight squeak per rotation.

I've got stock GSX-R 320mm rotors and EBC HH pads. I haven't noticed it affecting my braking (quick stops are all controlled.)

Is this a sign I should get new rotors?

Not necessarily unless you are experiencing alot of shutter at higher speeds I would not worry about it! I've had bikes that had that grinding rubbing noise even when I wasn't braking but there was never a problem in braking.:thumbup:

Someone told me that it was because my rotors were warped and it will get worse with time...

I also had someone else told me it was due to the EBC HH pads and it's normal for them to do that... :shifty

It probably is a slightly warped rotor or both. Those after market pads tend to heat the rotors up faster/hotter imo. But like I said, unless you are experiencing poor braking and shuttering then you're good to go. They will not explode I promise!:thumbup:

Get errrrrrrrr done!!!!!!!!!!!!! You aint bought em' yet!!
Feel the rotors and see if they feel from inside out like they have deep grooves dug in them. Also if they're real bad warped then if you put the bike up on stands and spin the wheel from the front you can see the warp.

If you remove them and lay them on a flat glass you can see if they are warped or go ahead and stop at a harbour freights purchase a Micrometer and measure away. Chances are your it may be warped just a tad especially if it catching in one spot.

i have been having to ride alot in the rain lately so i would not be surprised if they got hot and i went thru water and they warped slightly. i am real apprehensive about buying used rotors because more than likely those were pulled off because of the same issue

This is normal IMO...


My rear brake does this and I run EBC HH and, cmon... I know the rear isn't warped. I use the front 99% of the time. Also the front rubs as well pretty much constantly to some degree.


I also noticed these pads are squeakyish.
