Rear brake pad replacement
I've just replaced my rear brake pads, at just on 10,000 km.
Seems these pads have worn really fast, really should have been changed before now but I had not noticed. I have to confess that I wasn't looking at them constantly, as, on other bikes I've never had pads wear much at all - I'm not a heavy braker, using front and rear together always, and I ride with my foot away from the pedal.
Obviously I am going to keep my eye on how these are wearing in comparison to the originally supplied pair. The replacements are genuine BMW spares, cost NZ$77 + gst. They are apparently the same pads as for the F650...
Anyone else gone through a set of rear pads yet?
