Replace Your Rear Brake Pads at 50000 Miles...

...or you wont be able to roll your bike. Thus, not be able to MOVE your bike much anywhere, unless you got 3-4 ABLED bodies.


What would you do? Mechanic is on his way to remove brake caliper. No rear brake from Pearland to Cypress!


pray for me.

Or you could ride a sportbike instead of a scooter, and not use the rear brake.

How the did they last that long to begin with? I think I typically replace fronts at 10-15k and rear at around 15k, whether they "need" it or not. Brakes seem like the second most important maintenance item on a bike (close second to tires).

This, even on my Harleys I never let a set of brake pads go past 18k.

This boggles my mind, as how they lasted that long, and why you let it go on that long!
