cant get disc to fit between new brake pads

got my new race driven severe duty pads in sat...tonight i took my old pads off and compressed the piston all the way in...the disc will not fit in between the two pads...now the pads said they are for 08-09 but i asked the company if they would fit my 2011 and they said yes...so im not sure why its not going back together like supossed to be...im thinking the pads may be to thick or the disc is thicker than the older year kings...has anyone else ever had this problem...should i try and sand them down to get them to fit or just send them back and have them send me two new sets.

if you have time and dont plan on riding soon and dont need it for work, id just see about swaping them out. if you are riding soon then yeah you could probably just sand them down a touch. just make sure you do it evenly.

Did you by chance not press the piston back in on the caliper?

You know alot of these smaller brakepads still contain asbestos. There was never a law passed banning it's use. It was phased out voluntarily by the auto manufacturers. There are even some auto companys that are still using asbestos in there brake linings, (Hyundai and Kia).

Somthing to keep in mind before anybody else sands down a set of brakepads, protect yourself.

It was banned for use in building supplies like drywall mud. But even then they can still use it in concrete formed ductwork if local building code allows it.

The North American auto manufacturers voluntarily quit using asbestos when the health risks became known.

As far as smaller stuff I have seen a set of brake pads for a snowmobile that contained asbestos in the last five years.

No problem. Most people don't know that things still can contain asbestos. Not sure if yours do or not but really what's the harm in protecting yourself?
