Yes :imaposer:

You realize the brakes are for slowing down, I do not do that too often which is evident when you look at my rear tyre wear :deal:

OH!  Is that what they are for?  I thought it is just so we can brag about ABS and stuff.   :ricky:

Problem on some early bikes
3 bikes on our tour of Germany with LC's had to have their rear pads replaced at around 4K
And at the time a discussion with the workshop doing the replacement confirmed that they had done quite a few bikes at very low kms


I got the first LC when launched from Donford. I commute every day from n/Subs to Woodstock, 25km one way. I got 10 000km from the back brakes. I had a steering oscillation problem from 2000km and at 14 000km BMW did a buy back deal for me and I got a brand new bike, this time with steering damper and cruise control. I got the new bike in August last year. New bike has 6000km on the clock and so far no brake pad issues I aware of.  I don't use my back brakes when commuting, so to me 10 000kn is kak mileage for back brakes!

Op 16 000 km is reeds deur my eerste stel agter "disc en pads". Huidige pads het 1.0 mm " friction" materiaal- skat ongeveer 1 000 km oor. Wag vir Bmw SA om op te verklaar hoe ek disc skade moet vermy siende dat pads nie 10 000 km maak nie.  Nav stats wys ek het 168 vs. 465 voor vs. agter remme gebruik. Soos enige normale ou  gebruik ek hoofsaaklik voor remme. Ek vermoed die problleem het iets te doen met die " brake force distribution front to rear" wanneer  voor remme gebruik.

Ek wonder of die agter rem nie per ongeluk heeltyd getrap word omdat die "pedaal'' te hoog gestel is vir staan en ry nie?

Ek is op 15000km met die oorspronklike pads.  Moet bysÍ - wonder of ek in al daardie kilos 10 keer my voet op die agterpedaal gesit het. Die rem wat ek van voor af kry is genoeg vir my

Wanneer ek die agter rem gebruik is dit gewoonlik om die agterwiel te sluit  >:D :imaposer:

Julle klink net soos BMW/handelaar! My 2004 GS het my 30 000 km gegee- my "riding style" het nie verander nie.

Maar!

My 09 en my vrou se 09 het nie sommer verder as 15000km op agterbrieke gegaan nie.

My 14 is nou op 10000km (tydens diens reken hulle nog 4000km) en my vrou se 14 op 18000km en ons het ook nie rystyl verander nie.

Het die 04 al linked braking gehad?

Ek glo nie die 2004 het "linked braking" gehad nie. Dit is wat my betref irrelevant. My verwagting is dat die kalibrasie van die "brake force distribution front to rear" van so n aard is dat ek nie met n agter rem slytasie probleem sit nie.

Vir my is dit normaal as die '''pads'' elke 15 000 km's, of meer, vervang moet word. My agter remme het ongeveer 50 % oor op 12 500 km's, wat ek nie dink sleg is nie?

Normale slytasie?

Ek dink weer dit is uiters relevant.  Op jou 04 kon jy kies om nooit jou agterwiel te gebruik bie.  Op die kinked braking modelle werk die agterwiel altyd.  Ongeag hoe dit gekalibreer is sal dit nie so lank hou nie.

Jy moet hom net dophou. My laaste 50% het soos blits gegaan binne 2000 kilo's as ek reg skat

Ek verstaan dat dit relevant is dat die 2004 nie linked braking gehad het nie. Wat ek met irrelevant bedoel is dat die pads ten minste 12 000 km moet hou sodat dit die diensinterval oorskry!
BMWSA het vandag nuwe keramiek pads opgesit. Het my niks gekos nie. Goeie diens van Continental Port Elizabeth en die fabriek! Wag en sien hoe lank hou die ceramics (R950)
