Frustrated_Diver Posted June 1, 2010 Share Posted June 1, 2010 Dear Resident Experts, Memorial Day a friend and i did the 36,000 mile service and now i’m worried. The rear brake is going through pads like they were cheap. Here’s a bit of history on the bike: • At the 6,000 mile check the shop’s mechanic said the rear bearing was “catchy”. It was replaced. • February, 2008 i was rear ended and got a new final drive assembly and some other stuff back there (i don’t really know what all of it was). • Sometime before 24,000 miles i wore the inside pad to the metal scoring the rotor. • Shortly thereafter one of the bolts holding the rotor to the wheel loosened and damaged the caliper assembly and rotor. Rotor and caliper mounting bracket were replaced under warranty. • Now, in about 12,000 miles i’ve gone through another set of rear pads. • Daily commute is 3.8 miles with too many turns and red lights. No, i DO NOT ride the brake so please don’t suggest that as the problem. While i do use the rear brake, i rely mostly on the front brake. Of course, this model has the partially linked brakes so i get some rear brake anyway. The front pads seem to be wearing normally and have been replaced once at about 28,000 miles if my poor memory serves me correctly. What’s wrong? Link to comment
