HI, everyone. I am getting so frustrated with my maxi's brakes. I bought a pair of aftermarket pads that came in a white box. They are obviously not the same as the original, as those were made out of asbestos??
Well, the problem is, after scoring and cleaning the drum about 10 times and installing the new pads, they have no stopping power. I was told they had to seat, and its been 2 weeks now, and I have even tried sanding the GLAZE off the pads. I put my original pads on, they stop on a dime! They have very little material left, so thats why I need replacement.
HOW CAN I FIX THIS? I cant stand it, I have taken the wheel off 5 or 6 times, making sure everything is clean, and scoring the drum and making sure the pads are touching. The new pads are the same ones available from here
I have noticed that with the new pads, I can tightnen them to the point where they are dragging on the wheel, and they still wont stop. And when they heat up, it gets worse.
I NEED BETTER PADS???? ANY SUGGESTIONS
THANK YOU EVERYONE, SORRY FOR THE LONG POST
