Question about 2005 Harley Davidson FXD - FXDI Dyna Super Glide
To answer your question, Yes, this is normal and there is no adjustment in any disc brake system to stop this. In a disc brake system, the pads are supposed to ride against the rotor all the time with a light force. This is to keep the rotor clean and dry at all times. That's why disc brakes are so good in rainy weather where the old drum brakes would get water in them and then you had nearly no brakes at all.
Now, when you had your brakes done, you probably asked for the "best" brake pads available. These would be sintered metal brake pads. Due to their composition, they will be a bit more noisey than than the standard "organic compound" pads. Most people get used to it or put up with the noise to get the better braking. Not only are they noisey, they wear the rotors quicker as well. But, they provide the best braking of any pads on the market.
