hey... just wondering how long(how many miles) the brakes last? i just turnes 5k on my bike, prolly have another 5k on b4 winter. should i do brakes in winter? or do they last longer?
\svslider said:I try not to brake hard and I have about 17000 miles and a little pad left and I have used only the fronts after about 3000 miles when I broke off the rear pedal. My chain is also worn out real bad and its missing some o rings too. You can see the pads condition easily by bending down and looking at them.
I use the HH kit they are very good pads and work great just keep in mind that the sv does warp pads very badly if you do track days or race the thing.I got almost 30K out of my front pads. It really does depend on the rider. I'm thinking the EBC HH's will be shot after 15K as I use/trust them more. A little under 8 for the OEM rear pads, but the replacement rears look great after 29K.
Ok, now of all of you that originally posted in this thread...how many of you have had to change brake pads, and how many times...since you first posted in this thread that is.holy old thread !
