SBS pads

Postby armstrongracer » Thu Jul 11, 2019 1:18 pm

I replaced oem with SBS sintered a while back in a 950sm with SD front brakes. Everything worked fine. The a few weeks ago I jet washed bike in one of those "eco" wash places with bright blue detergent. Straight away I noticed the front disk hissed every time brakes were first applied. Force & action was ok though. Last night I rode in rain for first time. Really scary lag when brakes first applied, then normal feel & action. Last time I had brakes lag like that was on Z1000's and GS1000's (I'm old). Any Ideas? Contaminated pads or pistons sticking so pads are too far off the discs.
