I replaced the rear brake pads at about 10,000 miles. They did need it.
15,000 miles and the front has plenty remaining.

Replaced the rear at 30K miles.   Fronts are close to needing replacement..... Trying EBC Double-H pads...   So far so good...

I've got 16K on the Trophy and looked at the front pads today. I've got most of the pad left. There rears were replaced by the dealer after their maintenance screw-up so they are new.  Pad wear can vary depending on riding style and environment and I ride in mostly empty country, often riding more than a 100 miles without slowing down much less touching the brakes so I'm not typical.  The fronts were evenly worn left and right and inside and out.

I have never heard of them.  They have a website. http://www.xytaustralia.com/ but you don't learn much. Not to say they might be quite ok, and come out of the same factory as many other rebranded parts.

Its not as if I have not used aftermarket parts, at least on the Honda ST1100. One other place in Australia is http://metalgear.com.au/view_model_details.php?model_id=11827 where I bought new front rotors and pads for the ST1100.
