Carbone Lorraine Brake Pad Life (Miles)
What's your average miles on your brake pads.
I just put my third set of rear pads & my second set of front pads on in the 40,000 miles I have put on my bike since I've had it. I don't have any idea how many miles were on the pads when I got the bike & I am pretty sure they were BMW pads but at 10,000 miles after I got it they were wore out.
So that means in 30,000 miles riding on the Carbone Lorraine pads I'm getting a average of 15,000 out of the front pads & 10,000 out of the rear pads.
I have suspected stuck caliper pistons or a bad brake line but every time I do a high speed coast down to a stop without using the brakes the rotors are cool touching them with my bare hand. That tells me that they are not dragging. I also get good fuel milage.
I'm thinking I might need to change my riding habits in town back & forth to work. I do ride completely different in town verses when I'm on a trip. When I'm close to home I am a very aggressive rider with road rage most of the time. I do my best to never give up my right of way unless its an emergency vehicle (with its emergency lights on) or a sweet looking babe.
