Question about 1999 Yamaha YZF-R1
What usually sets the pads back from the disc is a thing called runout.Discs are not perfect in the way they run.Apply the brakes,let them go and the offset or not quite true disc,moves the pads apart.This pushes the pads apart at the highpoint of the offset.Without this,brakepads would sit there all day and overheat.Yours sound like they are not releasing pressure.This is the master cylinder.There is only 2 things in brakes,master and slave cylinders.Please get the master cyl. checked.I hope this is without abs brakes.Hope this helps
