Grimeca Caliper and EBC HH Pads - Fit Issues

i fitted a pair of EBC HH pads to my Grimeca caliper a little while ago and have had a couple of issues with them, firstly they overhung the outer edge of the disc by a couple of mm, the Ferodo pads I replaced didn’t overhang, but I milled the excess off the EBC pads which sorted that. The second issue it that they are a slightly loose fit and at low speed the the inboard pad picks up on the disc and then releases, only very slightly but at low speed you can hear the tick tick as the pad picks up and releases which is somewhat irritating. I have used EBC pads on plenty of bikes over the years and have always found them to be excellent which is why I thought I’d try a pair on the Commando.

Pistons are perfectly free.

Anyway it’s back to Ferodo for me but I just wondered if anyone else had experienced similar problems?
