Replacement brake pads 1200Gs & 650's
« on: January 03, 2007, 01:03:26 pm »
The replacement pads for the 1200Gs, most motorcycle shops can order these pads, most BMW's use Brembo's as does KTM.

Ferodo Platinum Series front: FDB 2125P
Ferodo Platinum Series rear: FDB2018DX


I paid for the front one R260 per pair, the back ones are R180 per set.



Carbonelorraine 1200GS

The 650Gs and Dakar uses the same pad for the front as the 1200Gs rear.

The 650's can also use Carbone Lorraine pads. I have used these pads on the Dakar and they work as well with the same miles as the OEM units.

650 and DAKAR

Front: 2396 A3 AV around R200 per set
Rear: 2353 RX AR around R190 per set





You also need to bed-in the brakes.

Front pads 2050 P ( fits 1100 & early 1150 with brembo calipers, pads come fitted with anti-rattle clips )
Front pads 2125 P ( fits 1150 abs & non abs BMW calipers)

Front pads 2124 P ( fits servo models )

Rear pads 2039 P ( all models

The only bad side with Ferodo sintereds are that they're screaming badly!

I've run them few sets now. They always scream and I hear the same from others using them on various bikes. But Ferodo is the most cheapest I've seen too...:roll:

I have a bit more expensive set now in mi front. Can't remember the name of the make, they were just a very little more expensive, they are sintered and they run silent.

So if you want more silent move, look for something a bit more expensive in the sintered pads line. Also the organic brake pads usually run more silent, but they don't have the bite the sintereds have, mind.

Somebody said that you must use the Ferrodo "Platinum" range not the std ones maybe they are better?

Bump, this should be a sticky BTW.

Michnus, the carbon lorraine pads, are they fOK for the facelift Dakar, as i see it lists only uip to 2004

My local car spares shop said he will order anything bike related (that he can get) from the supplier at his normal mark-up, not "at bikeshop prices" lik he said..

I need to replace my brakepads, and am not paying BEEEG bucks for bm OEM stuff

Had my 650gs serviced, They renewed the rear set only??? R300.89. Seems strange when the front brake is used 90%. I did not notice till I saw this post. :( . Total cost for 20k service: R3339.98, of that was R1103.99 labour.

Not sure with the 650, but on the 1150, the rears often bind a bit due to the sliding pins drying out and siezing, so the pads can wear quite quickly.

A warning.
BMW charges R1200 (excluding labour) to replace front pads on a 1150GSA.

Rather do it yourself.

Thanks Mich, mental note made.  I also "paid" for the knowledge, expensive lesson.

I called the Ferodo agents in Strand for the above mentioned brake pads and they don't even know of such pads!!  And they are the bloody agents!!!

What brake pads do I have to buy for my R1100GS and where do I get it??
Ability is useless unless it's used!!!

You must ask at motorcycle dealers, normal motorcar part shops won't know what you're talking about.

Also ask your non-BMW dealer for Carbonlorraine most dealers stock them.

Contact Brembo importer today in JHB. He do not normally stock the 1200GS/ADV but if you can a few friends together he will get them in about 8 days. He says he will sell roughly for R700/R800 a set (2 sets) not the R2000 plus that BMW charge for their pads from the same company.

Michnus on Sat replaced the rear tyre.

Next thing the teccie tunes me: Nooit the rear brake pads are gone. Get a set @ R400, meanwhile another fcuker checks the front ones and shows me they're gone as well. @#$%^& R2k later I walk out of there, budget fcuked for the month. Spoke to one of the teccies there, asking about after market jobbies. He reconed on ABS models you HAVE to use OEM rear pads, but can use aftermarker front one.

Do you concur?
