Getting close to time to change brake pads on The Beast.
What's the best pad material?
Should I go with sintered or semi-sintered?
I have 5500 miles on my bike, does it digest pads the fast?
Any particular brand that's better than the rest?
Galfer, EBC, etc.
I am new to the R3 world, still learning and would like to learn more from you guys.
I own a 2010 R3T, purchased it almost 10 months ago. I don't own a car and use the motorcycle to commute daily to work and other places.
I am planning to perform a regular maintenance on my...
Took a chance and bought this set of front and rear pads. $15 shipped for all 6 pads!! They looked to be semi-metallic. So far so good over the last 5 weeks.

Took my 2014 R3T in for an oil change today. I also wanted the stealership to check my brakes. I was starting to feel what felt like brake fade.
Turns out my pads where down to 20% life after 13,000km. Is that a little premature or somewhat normal?
They've also told me the stock...
How often have you touring riders in particular, had to replace your brake pads? I know it depends on your riding habits, but how many miles should I expect to get out of my pads? With a rear tire change coming up in in a few more thousand miles, it would be wise to have a set of pads on hand...
Hey guys, quick question - I know the user manual says the bike has to be upright to service the brakes, but I don't have any way to do that right now and I just need a quick 10 minute service on the callipers done. I just want to replace the pins (noticed during last pad change that there was...
I recently replaced my rear brake pads on my R3T after 20000 Ks from new , I am not a rear brake over user,the original pads were worn but not badly I just thought it was time,the new pads went in surprisingly easily ,and were Ok, and I thought no more about them, today after a nice 300k ride...
Anyone got a fix for noisy/chattering brake pads? I'm real sick of hearing it whenever I hit a bump in the road (from both the front and the rear).
I can make it stop by applying light pressure to the brake levers, but I will wear out the pads in no time! Too many bumpy roads around and not...
I installed my first set of new front brake pads today with 17,700 miles on the original pads that still had more than half the meat left on them. Oh well, I got the pads with my Rocket Classic recently purchased. So I put them on. WOW ! What a difference ! I do need new back pads for sure, so...
Got the bike inspected yesterday and they told me they let me slide with the brake pads, but they needed to be replaced... soon.
So where do you guys get your pads?
I would really like to stay with a softer pad, as I would just as soon have to replace them then a rotor. I know that Flip sells...
