I replaced the front brake pads on my 02 mean streak. now when the bike is moving it makes a grinding noise like the pads are pressed to the rotors. it gets louder when you press the brake lever and the sound get quieter the more you ride but it doesnt go away completely. i replaced the stock pads with EBC Double H Sinistered brake pads. The bike only has 5600 miles on it. Any help resolveing the matter is appreiceted.

sounds normal to me... unless your caliper is really dirty and the pistons are sticking and not retracting as far as they need... give it a good cleaning (purple power and tooth brush) off the bike, pads out......
