    Brake pad life

    For those of you that have replaced the brake pads, about how many miles are you getting on a set of pads - front and rear?

    Replacing with OEM or aftermarket like EBC and have you found one brand better than another?

    Heading down to Smokies end of May and thinking I will just replace pads in advance as I am at about 12,500 miles and by the trip will be closer to 15K.

    i have over 25000 miles on my bike and the original pads are fine than again I don’t use the brakes much living in VT if I ride north from my house I have to go about 45 miles before I run into a stop light.

    I'm about 32K on original pads just passing a service inspection. Too many freeway miles I'm sure.
    There's nothing like looking when you're trying to find something.
