<snip>I came across this video and noticed Kawasaki wheels and brake setup. I hope that it helps somebody.
Be damned. I just had this problem with 600 mile-old Versys rear wheel, dealer de-glazed the pads under warranty.
I should have tried this first before handing the keys over to Ye Olde Dealer for fixing (I wince every time I take the bike to a dealer for service...)
