I changed my pads, and thats when all the trouble started.
I got a new set of pads (stock oem) from the dealer,
put them on and tested them. Thefronts were marginal at best, and the rear was almost non-existant. I pulled them off, scuffed them with a light grit sandpaper and put them back on. No improvement. I then bled the whole system. No improvment. Repeated all this twice. Then i took it to a dealer who basically did the same thing. The performance of these pads is NOWHERE near that of when i first got the bike.

any tips, suggestions? did i miss something maybe?
thanks guys

It seems like the pads take a long time to bed in. My OEM rear brake was basically hopeless until about 1000 miles, at which point it had improved to dreadful while developing a nasty squall.

Replaced it with a BrakeTech iron full floating rotor and Ferodo platinum pads. Now it's a pretty good brake, and is totally silent. It took a while for the Ferodo pads to bed in too.

My front brakes were awesome from the start, they're like dropping an anchor.

My only suggestion is not much help, really. Just give 'em some time. It sounds like you've covered the standard procedures, bleeding and deglazing.
