What about these brake pads?


Recommended Posts

Getting to be time to replace my brake pads. These seem extremely inexpensive.



Would you buy them? Comments welcome


I'm far from being an expert. I look at it this way.


1- Is my time and effort (self proclaimed hourly wage) for doing a job myself and installing questionable parts worth the time to do it again once I found out the parts didn't cut the mustard.


2- Replace the words "time and effort (self proclaimed hourly wage)" with "body and recuperation time".


I'm just sayin.


I would check out Beemer Boneyard or maxbmwmotorcycles

If you're a laid back rider rather than a hard charger ... those probably will work fine. Heck they may even be a quality name brand without the brand, who knows? But that's the issue.


Some of us, myself included, tend to push the envelope at times. So when I need products to help stay upright and avoid bumping into things - like brakes and tires - I won't get the cheapest available and go with a known and proven product. A firm believer that most of the time "ya get what ya pay for" :Cool:

I have purchased super cheap break pads for the dirt bike and was very disappointed. They did not last at all. Wore out 90% faster than name brand. No Joke on that stat!


They stopped just fine though....

That's CRAZY cheap - like $2.25 a pad, and really less than that as they come with free shipping. I'm a relatively poor beemer rider, and like a bargain when I can find one, but I'm awful suspicious of their ability to provide a quality product at that price. Also, that review doesn't ring true as a real review to me. Just my two hundreths of a dollar though, and worth about that much - or maybe less :)

They may do you much more harm than good. A friend of mine fitted a set of cheap pads. They destroyed the discs in double quick time and cost him way more than a decent set of pads would have done.
