Front brake pads

How many miles have you put on k12/1300 GT brake pads? I'm at 90k and still have the originals on with plenty pad left. I rarely use the rear brake and am on my 5th set of rears.

Re: Front brake pads

Well you made me look into it and......I have 73k on my front pads. I'm usually changing the rears at 10-20k but the fronts have not been changed since I bought the bike with only 8,100 miles on it.

Odd....I check every spring and they are fine. I'm guessing our linked system is rear biased.

Re: Front brake pads

Yes I agree. Switched to EBC FA363V. Semi sintered. Less brake dust. I too got between 10-20k on the rear. Only have 6k on the V's. We'll see how long they last.
