Front Brake Pads Rubbing (Lightly)

5188 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  MotoMerica
I bought a '15 FZ-07 last week and just hit 200 miles. When I got done with a 30 mile ride through some hills (lots of turns and using my brakes), I turned my engine off and moved my bike to park it. I heard a slight rubbing sound, but it didn't seem to cause any resistance that I could tell. Both calipers are sightly engaged and the brakes are rubbing on each of the front discs. Is there an easy fix for this? Am I safe driving it ~1 hour to a Yamaha dealer and having them fix it since it is still under warranty? Just bummed I am already having problems on a brand new bike, YAMAHA AT THAT!

Normal to hear the pads lightly swooshing against the rotors while pushing the bike.
What he said. Perfectly normal.
Normal for every bike that I've owned. If you have a way to lift the front end off the ground safely (front stand), try spinning the front tire/wheel and you will probably get at least 6 - 8 complete revolutions AND hear the slight rubbing.....depending on how fast you are able to spin it. Or, you can just trust us and believe that it's normal
