30 000 diens Maandag laat doen. Voorste pads nog nooit vervang nie en hulle se ek kan nog heelwat ry.

Agterste pads het ek al 3 keer vervang. R420 by bikezone en vat 2 minute 24,5 sekondes om te vervang myself. En ek is tegnies gestremd ook


What year LC is yours and what type of riding do you do, pleasure or commuting?

2014. Pleasure only. Lots of gravel as well. Think that has lots to do with back brakes needing more attention more often

Hel, maar jy is stadig!  Of?  Het jy dalk 'n bier breek gevat op 1 minuut 12,25 sekondes?   :laughing4:

Took my bike in for a shaft check and was told that my rear pads are metal on metal... told them to leave it.

Checked and I can probably do another 1000 - 2000km with them...  >:(

Hey Guys for those in GP I can supply SBS Sintered brake pads for the R1200GSA LC  and of course all model bikes!
SBS are top quality and I have had them on my LC for ages and they get used hard including a track day at Phakisa recently where I was doing 2:04's around the track with no fade whatsoever.
R799/set front (that's actually 4 pads in total)
R 479.00 rear
The fitting charge is minimal if you need them installed at our workshop in Rivonia.
Even if your bike is still in Warranty fit the generic - no one will know.

We Service & Repair Dual Sport & Adventure Bikes

Our quality is our key!
