I've been braking hard a lot trying to bed them in, its been a few days now and nothing...I'm going to switch just the pads from side to side tomorrow and see what happens. I have a feeling the yellow hue on the rotor isn't normal...

The rotors are OEMs from 949 and hawk HP+

The gold color is just some heat.

I thought it was braking but pulling...ahh. You put all the clips and sliders in, calipers not upside down when you swapped it? Does the pedal go to the floor or no?

Everything is installed correctly, I have a firm pedal. I've eliminated any of the calipers. It has to be something with the pad/rotor.

Pardon me.

I happen to be a little busy at the moment.
You see, I'm somewhat pre-occupied. You know, extracting my foot from my mouth and what not.
Cheerio!

You're sure it's a brake problem?

Only under heavy braking, and the non existant wear on the rotor is what I'd call a dead giveaway
