Think I got my use out if these :)
Think I got my use out if these
13k ish now Owain
Loads left on those!
The near one seems to be worn a bit off-square, was the pad pin that end smooth so the pad could move, and were the caliper sliding pins ok?
Aaron these were the stock ones and I think whoever put them on before may have aligned them slightly off as the wear was not exactly even on one of the pads, I checked over the pin when I cleaned it and it was fine no grooves or notches and the pistons were absolutely fine as well. There was a bit more life in them but just did the whole service on the bike today thought I might as well change them but yeah I agree the wear was strange I will take mine out after 1k miles and check them see if its the same story
There never really even due to the leading something or another
Buster yeah always noticed that on my other bikes its clearly not something bad like a seized piston so it doesn't worry me at all the bike stopped fine for 13k miles ;)
They're the same pads for 13k?!?!
I'm guessing bought the bike with something like 4k miles and the pads barely had any wear and for the rest of the 9k I haven't changed them since they were still within the wear limit the rear are still fine with loads on them, 13k doesen't surprise me at all for stock pads
Even when half-worn like these, most pads are really filthy and repson well to a good scrub with a (totally clean) wire brush. Gets them almost like new.
