I just replaced the front and rear brake pads on my 99 wide glide, now I am getting an annoying rubbing sound on the front. How do I eliminate this rubbing? Brakes well and no other issues with the rear.
Are you sure the piston in the caliper is clean and moving freely?
What pads did you put in?
Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

I installed Harley brand pads, and yes the piston moves freely. I'm assuming the pads back off from the rotor when not actuated, right?
Good one about the baffles, but it is only noticable when coming to a stop or slow run.
I know that sound well. On every bike I have owned when I changed the front pads I got the same noise. Use a hand file to bevel the edge. This does help, bet when the bevel has worn down it will return. When it happens this way you know what it is and you dont worry about it any more.
