Bought a set of R1s of Ebay, apparently new off a bike. Certainly they were absolutely spotless. Fitted them expecting great things....what a let down.
Felt like sponge, can just about lock the rear, front is vague at best. Wondered if the pads were contaminated so cleaned rotors (again) and swapped the pads round to see if the front had improved. Still rubbish..
Theres certainly alot of pull before any hint of a bite point but it certainly doesn't go back to the bars. Been up and down the road about 30 times trying to bed them in, do I cycle up to a big hill tomorrow and hope they've bedded by the bottom of the descent, or do I quit, send them off for a bleed (and new pads) and rob the big bike of the xts for my race on saturday.
