Boda Posted May 3, 2006 Share Posted May 3, 2006 I have an 03RT that had just over 24K when I brought it in for its 2yr/24K service. I had already changed the rear pads once (with almost no pad left), and had to change the rear pads again (NO pad left) as well as the rear rotor (because there was no pad left!) just to get it to the dealer. I know, my fault for not keeping up on visuall brake inspections. Anyway, after the pad and rotor change, the bike was not ridden until the trip to the shop, approx 160 miles. Upon arrival, I noticed that the rotor was arleady blueing!!! I mentioned this to the shop and was assured it would be checked. I was told that I was riding the rear brakes while I rode!! Can anyone say linked??? Anyway, I was then given my computer report that stated that out of 2yrs of riding, can't remember running hrs, that may brake application between the front and rear was different by only around 3 min. I don't undrestand why my rears are wearing much faster than my fronts, which BTW, haven't been changed yet and still look good. Anyone else have this problem or know of a solution to correct it, or should I just suck it up and be more vigilant in my visual brake inspections? Link to comment
