    I managed to get out on the bike a bit more this weekend with some errands to run, and the weather was dry and relatively warm one day and wet/rainy the next.

    Knowing how new your pads are i would ride it and see if this gets better. Stop every 10km or so and check the temp of the brake disc and see if it is heating up, which would mean there is constant...

    At that short range they're barely scratched in. Go and ride it some more and that should help. As they have a chamfer from new, they will be point loading until it flattens out and starts to mate...

    Are the pads fully bedded in yet, or is there still a slight slant on the mating face? It can take a while for the pads to bed in, depending on the riding you have been doing - especially as the ST...

    You can wire brush & sand the pins to make sure they're smooth - no grease is needed. If it starts to melt/drip down you'll need to get new pads.

    TBH i wouldn't bother buying one anyway. They make very little difference, IMO, to the bike.

    Don't use a Masonry bit, it's not sharp for plastics - use a wood or metal bit to give a clean drill.

    kickback=reward/benefit etc. the cost of buying the ESA suspension, modules, switch gear, wiring, set up & installation, coding etc. May as well buy a GT with it already installed.

    It is a bit perplexing considering on a bike it is a key component for rider feel & confidence. Although i guess it is to drive you to buy the models with the extra packages or the ESA set up.

    Wiring in a fusebox would suggest other things may be added further down the line. Best to do that groundwork now and have it in place, rather than going back on yourself a few months down the line.
