New Versys Front Brake Sound

Hey all,
I finally got my Versys! I love the thing, but when I finally got off it today and rolled it down my driveway I couldn't help but notice a light scraping sound coming from the front brake which sounded like it was engaged.

I drove the bike around the block without using the front brake and the rotor and caliper were still cold. I don't know what this sound is, has anyone else experienced it?

Thanks!

Thanks very much, I'll mention it to the dealer but I won't make it an issue. If I felt the brakes were actually engaged any significant amount I certainly would.

It should go away after you break them in. Some of that is just disk brakes.

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

Sounds like a challenge to me!

Now I have four!
