Howdy y'all and Merry Christmas!
I have been experiencing a horrible scrapping sound from the front brakes on my GSA (14K mi) ABS on or off makes no difference. I have looked at the pads and there is plenty of life left. There are no grooves present on the rotors. The noise occurs only just before the bike actually stops. I do not notice it while braking for turns, corners, etc. The rear brake is silent and works just fine. Any thoughts?
I have noticed that my normal commuting mileage of 40.2 mpg has dropped to 36.8 mpg. Could this be a fucntion of fuel formula seasonal change over? There also appears to be a bit of surging (gasp) under 3500 rpm in 3rd or lower gears. What suggestions or ideas are out there?
None of this is show stopping but......
Take care, y'all
