Re: brake pads

OK, I'll have a go at it.

I'm going to guess you are asking "where do we BUY brake pads" since the "t" is next to the "y"

Beemerboneyard is probably your best source. EBC brand is mentioned the most. This link is for bikes built from 2/01 K1200LT (From 2/01)

05 K1200LT - The Golden Rocket Ship
91 K100RS - The White Stallion
85 K100 Standard - Big Red
79 R65 - "The Bee" is a buzzin' again!
06 525i - Premium, Sport, Comfort, Xenons

Gone, but not forgotten...
02 K1200LTC - Big Blue (accident at 40k)
88 K100RT - Chocolate (it was brown, melted - fire)
85 K100RT - (wore out)
82 Yamaha Vision - (electrics)
72 Yamaha R5C 350 - (broke trans)

My rotor went from smooth at 27,000 miles when OEM pads wore out to severely scored and wear limit at 54,000 miles. I didn't make the connection until I bought the EBC replacement rear rotor and ordered another set of pads from BBY.

The EBC instructions are ADAMANT that full sintered pads not be used on the rear. They claim that the LT requires a thicker rotor than other bikes and that this thickness is only available in a softer alloy which will be ruined by full sintered pads. So I went to Amazon and bought the semi sintered pads from EBC that they recommend. And they cost less than the BBY Carbone Lorraine pads.

If anyone wants a set of BBY pads ... I will sell my "new in the package" set. BBY insists these are suitable for the LT, but I respectfully disagree.
