    I just purchased HD pads from Harley dealer for rear but find that they squeak and the rotor is turning blue. Checked fluid level in master cylinder which is fine. Wheel has no drag, hot or cold. Has anyone had this problem and how do I fix it? :(

    If the rotor is turning blue, the pads are dragging and heating it up. You may have to clean the caliper up and bleed the brakes to remove any air that expands when hot and may be causing the problem.
