Right new pads went in on my 2019 f 3400 miles version .so only 3 months old . The front wheel seems to bind a lot ,it will only turn one Revolution with a good push .iv striped the brakes down again this morning and cleaned the pistons and all the calipers . Put back together and still the same . I was going to put red rubber greese on the pistons but I've read mixed reviews on it some say yes some say use brake fluid but to be honest Suzuki don't use anything and some people say that too .. anyway my point is will it just take time to bed in . I've done 60 miles now and still no binding or is one full turn enough ... worried !!!!

I did the same and threw the original pads out almost straight away.
As to the the binding, take the reservoir cover off and check the rubber seal. If itís deformed it could be slightly pressuring the system.

Definitely should not be binding like that "only turn one Revolution with a good push"

Are you sure you purchased the correct pads? If so, maybe one or more is defective? Can you put the stock pads back in and see if it is the same?

if you squeeze the pistons back into the caliper (with a clamp) does it still rub ?, if it stops it, then you may have a sticky piston, usually piston seal related, dirt can get stuck in them causing the piston to bind
