Brake Pads

Post by AJC on Thu 22 May 2014 - 8:54

My GT650 failed its MOT last week on brake pads being badly worn - this was a real surprise at only 2300 miles!  Anyone had a similar level of wear, or I wonder if the dealer used my pads to service another bike when it was sitting in his showroom last year at only 900 miles (it was his own bike)......  I don't think I'm that hard on brakes.  

Anyway, new pads, no charge re-test and we are on the road for another year.

I had to change all of mine at about 3500 miles, the OEM oads might as well be made of cheese Smile

As I said in your other thread , my rear pads fell apart in under 2000 miles and front weren't much better  Rolling Eyes 

Swapped to EBC and since have tried Armstrong , Goldfren and am now back to EBC ( though that's another story  Wink  )
