Rear brake pads
« on: February 03, 2014, 08:10:31 pm »
How long do your rear brake pads last?  Worth checking before you get to metal-on-metal stage....  Mine did not make the service interval.

Mine did just under 5000 km.  And I don't do a huge lot of rear braking.  I suspect that the front brake applies quite a bit of rear same time?  And the replacement pads at BMW were about R800.  The same as a complete set for both front wheels for my Hilux!

Fitting took me 10 minutes. Including wiring the clips.  Easy job.

Riding a bike is not just about riding the bike....
Do not believe everything you think....
